Events on public property
Events in a park
Depending on the type of event you are hosting on private property, you may be required to get a permit or licence.
The length of time required for event approval depends on the complexity of the event. Additional approvals may be needed for things like building and electrical permits or street closures.
If your event requires additional permits, apply for a permit 2 to 5 months before the event date.
If your event does not require other permits, apply for a permit 4 weeks before the event date.
