Special Events Permit

The Town of Erie takes pride in hosting a wide-variety of events to offer to the community throughout the year. We strive to connect people to fun and are thrilled you want to do the same. To do so, all commercial activities and special events (i.e. bike races, running races, carnivals, parades, etc.) conducted within the Town of Erie are required to obtain a permit and/or license from the Town prior to commencing such activities. These events and activities are prohibited without a valid permit.

NOTE: This requirement does not apply to activities conducted solely on private property except that such activities will be conducted in compliance with all applicable ordinances and regulations

COVID Guidelines

All event permitting is being conducted according to local, state, and/or federal COVID-19 orders, regulations, laws, policies, and/or guidelines. A written COVID-19 Safety Plan is required to be submitted along with the event application. This plan must specifically address how the event coordinator will abide by health requirements for the safety of participants, staff/volunteers, performers/competitors, and overall safety of the venue. Coordinators should be familiar with guidelines prior to submitting application. 

If for any reason the Town deems this event unsafe due to safety and/or COVID related concerns, it will be cancelled.
