Raleigh City Code, the City of Raleigh’s Special Event Policy and other policies govern special events within the City. The Special Events Office has created a Special Event Planning Guide that provides relevant policies and procedures in a user-friendly manner to assist with event planning. All event organizers should review this guide prior to applying for an event, so they are aware of the complexities that come with hosting an event on City property. The guide covers the following:
- Who needs a City-issued Special Event Permit
- Deadlines and fees
- Permitting process overview
- Rules, regulations, and other considerations
We have online applications for Special Event, Filming, and Neighborhood Block Party requests.
