The Civic Events and Festivals Section can help plan major events on outdoor public property and on parkland.

About the Service

Civic Events Office

Planning an event and not sure where to start? Are you unsure where to go to find out bylaw information, the permits you need, and booking capabilities of a public space? If so – then you've come to the right place.

The Civic Events and Festivals Section will serve as your "one-stop shop" to coordinate your access to civic services. Our Section can help provide helpful tools and the advice you need to host a successful event on city-owned property.

How Do I Obtain the Service?

Contact us if you are planning an event on:

  • A public space or square
  • Parkland
  • Roads or sidewalks

See our list of Public Spaces

If you are planning an event in a private facility, or within an indoor City-owned facility, you likely will not need to contact the Civic Events Office.

For private, corporate, or group events please see our list of City facilities that are available for Rentals & Bookings.
