Special Event Application Procedures for 2022

Applications are now being accepted from organizations and individuals wishing to hold special events at City-owned venues or on City streets; review process starts January 31. Annual events will be given priority provided the request is received by January 31, after which time applications will be addressed as first-time events on a first-come, firstserved basis, based on availability. After January 31, applications must be received at least thirty days prior to the event and will be subject to the same terms and conditions as those applications received prior to January 31, 2022

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the City requires anyone wishing to host a special event to submit a COVID-19 Addendum to Special Event and Park Use Application and ensure participants act in accordance with the requirements and guidelines as set out by the province. Depending on the nature of your event, hosts may also be required to submit a COVID-19 safety plan along with your parks use application. Please refer to BC's Restart Plan for full details on outdoor gatherings.
