How do I obtain a permit for my special event?
Anyone interested in hosting an event should contact the special events coordinator at 360-863-4559 to schedule a preapplication meeting (the first step toward putting an event together).

Submit a completed Special Event Permit Application to the city, allowing enough time for city staff to review the permit before your event (depending on the size of the event, a minimum of 45 days).
