Planning an Event

Special events are a great way to highlight your organization and the community to both visitors and residents of Sanford.  It is the City of Sanford’s objective to help make sure that the event is safe, successful and planned effectively.

You need to obtain a Special Event Permit if...

  • Event is open to the public with or without a charge
  • Event takes place at a City of Sanford facility, or on public property or at a business
  • Event requires City services
  • Event involves closure or modification of traffic flow of local streets or any arterial street

The submission of a Special Event application may be one of several applications an event organizer may need to submit.  The responses to questions in the application will help the City inform you of other necessary permits and approvals needed.

For questions about holding a special event, please call the Recreation Department at 407.688.5120 opt 6.
