Groups and organizations that wish to hold special events in Evanston this year that use city facilities need to submit a preliminary application by Feb. 1.

A special event permit and policy instructions packet is available from the city website.

A non-refundable $100 application fee must be submitted along with the initial application.

A full application must be submitted to the Parks/Forestry & Recreation Department no later than Feb. 28, to allow sufficient time for city staff to evaluate the request and provide a recommendation to City Council for consideration, if necessary.
