Office of Special Events Production Management

The Special Events Office provides assistance in the coordination of events on public property such as the beach, a street, a park and in other properties requiring special zoning exemptions (i.e. hotel pool deck and roof top events) by assisting producers with guidelines and permit requirements and serving as liaison with local and regional city services and neighborhood associations.

This office issues Special Event Permits for private or public events on public property or inside private commercial property, Ceremonies & Team Building Permits for your simple ceremonies and/or wedding and team buildings on public property; Pop-Up Permits for temporary retail store activations, Community Arts and Culture Initiative Permits for small events and activations on North Beach’s Rue Vendome and other pedestrian friendly areas; Temporary Sampling Permits for distributing product on public property; Demonstration Letters, that give notice to our City Services for your upcoming Demonstration on public property, and Ambient Entertainment Permits for restaurants seeking to provide indoor ambient entertainment in zoned districts.

Please call us if you need more information on these requests.
