Phoenix's city streets are the site of dozens of festivals, runs, walks and parades each year. There is a lot you need to know if you are interested in holding an event on city streets. This online application will help you.
Effective May 1, 2008, a $400 Special Event Application for Right-of-Way fee applies to submit this application. There may be fees assessed for some city services, permits, park areas, and support services. As a standard, the city does not waive fees. The Special Event Application fee for Right-of-Way is non-refundable whether your application is approved or not.
Please note that additional permit requirements are not handled through the Street Transportation Department (i.e. liquor license permits) and require additional lead times for processing. Please take this into account when submitting your Special Event permit; as we cannot expedite your meeting to accommodate this requirement. For a list of other permits that may be required, please visit www.phoenix.gov/cityclerk/services/licensing
In response to recent changes to State Law, Special Events applications to park food trucks along public streets that are not in conjunction with an organized public event will not be accepted. Special Event applications cannot be used to hood meters for food truck vending.
Food truck vendors need to contact the License Services Office for information on any required City-issued vending permits.
NOTE: If this is a protest event, stop and use the Street Closures for Protests application form here at this link.
