Special Events

Special Events

It is recognized that special events often bring many benefits to the community. However, when these events are held on public premises or public right-of-way, they have the potential to impact the Village’s resources, facilities and property. Each event has unique characteristics and will have a different impact. Therefore, events need to be considered on a case-by-case basis in order to promote the responsible use of publicly owned premises and right-of-way.

In order to help event organizers coordinate their plans with Village requirements, we have compiled a Special Event Manual, containing application forms, policies, and related materials involved in the Village’s review and approval process. Please read this manual, as well as the full Special Event Policy completely, before filling out a Special Event Application. The application can also be submitted online here

PLEASE NOTE: Any facility reservations need to be submitted and approved prior to completing the Special Event Application. Scroll down for the applicable forms.
