Open Public Events

Open Public Events are events that take place at a City facility or in a City park and include festivals, concerts, community gatherings, races, cook-offs, or any other event that is open and advertised to the general public.

If you are interested in hosting an Open Public Event, please follow the steps below:

1. Take a look at the Open Public Event Packet (PDF) to familiarize yourself with the process.

2. Review our Facility Pricing Sheet to understand possible costs you might incur.

3. Complete and submit a Special Event Application 60 days in advance. Please note: the City is currently undergoing a transition into a new special event process. Once that process has been finalized, further instructions and a link to apply will be provided on this page. In the meantime, please email us to make your event request.

If you are looking to host a private event, please view our facility rental page.
