Working to Support Citywide Events and Film Production in Denver

City-wide Special Events and Film Production can help guide you in  planning, permitting and producing your public festival or other 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.
It is recommended that all event coordinators contact the Special Event office very early in the planning process.
