OSE Ordinance Lunch and Learn: Upcoming Changes for Event Organizers

Published on September 09, 2021

The Office of Special Events (OSE) has officially been added to the Denver's Revised Municipal Code resulting in the following:

  • OSE will no longer be positioned under the Mayor's Office but will be a stand-alone agency.
  • Organizers of public events that are held on public property and work with two or more City agencies are now required to submit an OSE application 60 days prior to the first day of the planned event.
  • Organizers of public events are now required to obtain an Office of Special Event Permit (OSEP) which will be issued when all applicable City requirements have been met. The OSEP will not replace any other agency permits but will signify the final step in the event application process.

Find out more details about these changes at a virtual Lunch and Learn on Thursday, September 16 from Noon to 1:00 PM.
