Paying online?

The City of Denver recently implemented a security enhancement to better protect our online payment processing system.  As a result of this enhancement, we are no longer able to accept payments from non-current browsers. If you are using an older browser version, please upgrade your browser to the most current version so that you can access the online payment service.

The Office of Special Events can help guide you in the planning process, permitting requirements and producing your special event.  The office functions as a public resource on all aspects of event production and as a liaison to the many festivals, outdoor concerts, runs, walks and parades held in the City.
Event organizers need to contact the Office of Special Events a minimum of 90 days prior to event date.


1. Complete the online application - this is an easy online form that will only take a few moments to complete.

2. Contact the office at 720-913-1501 with any questions - the Office of Special Events staff are here to assist you through the many different processes of the city.  Please let us know how we can help you!

3. Review the various department requirements - this section of the website provides you with valuable information  that will help you obtain all the necessary permits and approvals.  Additionally, you will find department contacts and links to the specific requirements.
