REQUEST A PROCLAMATION

 

Mayor Michael B. Hancock welcomes the opportunity to recognize exceptional individuals, groups and events within the City and County of Denver. Proclamations from the city are issued by the Mayor to honor, celebrate, or create awareness of an event, milestone, or achievement and, in rare cases, individuals of interest to the broader community. They can be issued for one day, week, or month. These public service documents are not legally binding nor do they constitute an endorsement by the Mayor.

All requests for proclamations must be submitted in writing at least three weeks prior to the date needed. The Mayor’s Office reserves the right to modify or deny any proclamation request. An organization does not have exclusive rights to one day, week or month of their proclamation and proclamations issued in previous years will not be automatically re-issued. A new request must be submitted and approved.

Proclamations may be published on your organization’s website or social media. If you intend to use the Mayor’s name or image in any other manner while promoting your proclamation, please contact the Mayor’s communications office first at 720-865-9021 or email milehighproclamations@Denvergov.org to obtain approval prior to doing so.
