Historical/priority events (those events which have occurred at the same location on the same date for two consecutive years) have first right of refusal for their same location and date in 2015. Historical/priority events will be notified by the Parks Permit Office via email the week of September 22 with specific information including their proposed 2015 date, and instructions on how to confirm for 2015. Historical/priority events will have until close of business (4pm) on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 to confirm their 2015 date with the Parks Permit Office. We ask that historical/priority events contact the Parks Permit Office directly IF they have not been contacted by close of business (4pm) on Friday, September 26, 2014.
2015 NEW Events and Special Occasions
(private, by invitation only events)
***as of September 8, 2014***
Please check back regarding booking a new event or special occasion in a Denver park, City Park Pavilion, or Washington Park Boathouse. We will post a weekly status update on this page.
While Denver evaluates its current citywide processes and criteria for permitting these popular events in and around the city and our neighborhoods, we will not be accepting applications for any NEW Run/Race/Walk or Bike Rides in 2014. This 2014 cap on new Runs/ Races or Bike Rides is necessary in order for the city to provide the best possible experience for those recurring events we currently permit on an annual basis.
For more information on these events, click here.
Parks and recreation property and facilities are often the preferred choice of citizens to conduct public assemblies or other activities to exercise their First Amendment Rights.
A public assembly permit is required when such an event is for 50 or more people. This provides adequate notice to the City about logistics and safety issues and plans can be made accordingly for public safety and services. These events typically require coordination with several other agencies in addition to the permit.
Park Permit Application
Professional filming or photography (including digital imaging) of public property in Denver requires a permit from Special Events and Film Production. A permit from DPR is also required if the filming, photography or imaging takes place in any Denver park or park facility. Such a dual permit typically requires coordination with several offices, therefore a minimum of 72 hours notice is required.
Filming Guidelines / Procedures:
All requests must be initiated with Special Events and Film Production.
