Special Events Update
To ensure the health and safety of our community, the City of Boise continues to monitor data we receive from the state and Central District Health to make informed decisions around re-opening our city. If the COVID-19 data and trends show that it is unsafe to host events, we may not issue permits. For up-to-date information on gatherings and events, please visit cityofboise.org/covid19 or sign up for the city’s weekly e-newsletter, In the Know.
Requirements for all Special Events:
Applications for Special Events must be submitted no earlier than one (1) year prior to the event date and no later than ninety (90) days prior to the event date if beer/wine will be sold or forty-five (45) days prior to the event date otherwise.
The permit process for using a park for your special event starts with scheduling your event's location, date and time. Submit applications to the Park Special Event Coordinator or City Clerk's Office for processing. Fees vary according to facilities and event needs. For more information, please contact the Park Special Event Coordinator at (208) 608-7600.
Parks available to schedule for a special event include 8th Street, Ann Morrison Park, Julia Davis Park, Cecil D. Andrus Park, Archery Range, Veterans Memorial Park and the Greenbelt. Any event open to the general public and advertised is required to apply for a Special Event Permit with the City of Boise and applicable park use permits.
