Special Event Permit

A special event is defined as a planned use, program or activity on county property, open to the public, and implemented by a person, association, or organization, other than Manatee County, involving people gathered for a designated activity other than normal park/beach activities which include swimming, picnicking and sports activities. Examples of special events include, but are not limited to: weddings, organized sports tournaments, educational seminars, concerts, and any activity where admission is charged to the general public.

Special Events require a special permit. We ask that you plan ahead by completing and submitting a Special Event Permit Application at least 30 days in advance of your planned function. Beach events may require permits from the local municipality.

Please contact Aedan Stockdale for application information at 742 5923, ext. 6039.
