Denver Parks and Recreation Accepting Applications for 2014 Event Permits on November 1

November 1 marks the first day Denver Parks and Recreation will accept permits for new events and weddings for 2014. This includes event facility permits, festivals, runs/walks, weddings and any non-sports related events.  Individuals and organizations interested in applying for permits can come to the Wellington Webb Municipal Building, 201 W. Colfax Ave., where the doors will open at 6:00 a.m. The Parks and Recreation Permit Office will accept applications on a first come, first served basis beginning at 8:00 a.m.  Light refreshments will be available for those waiting in line. 

Please note that many of the historic venues in parks across the city are incredibly popular. In years past, a line typically forms outside the Webb Building starting the night before.  It is usually a good practice to have several date options in case your first choice is not available. The line will form at the Webb Building entrance at 15th St. and Court St., across from the Downtown Sheraton hotel.  The line outside the building is not facilitated or monitored by Denver Parks and Recreation staff.

Applications for the Washington Park Boathouse and City Park Pavilion that are submitted after Nov. 1 are handled through the Special Event Facilities Coordinator.  Please call 720-913-0766 for any questions, or to set up a venue tour.  Applications for all other Denver Parks and Recreation park permits will be handled by the Permit office at 720-913-0700.
