The Special Events Committee is comprised of various local agencies such as Police, Fire, Health, Metro, Parks, Liquor Enforcement and more. You'll be asked to give a brief logistical/operational overview of your event. The Committee will ask questions and advise you what is required to obtain your permit; Examples: number of barricades, security requirements, health requirements for food handling, traffic control plans, etc.

You will be notified as to whether or not you need to appear before the Special Events Committee for an event review. You will be notified of the exact time for which you have been scheduled at least 3 days in advance.

This process is intended to encourage Special Events in Seattle and to empower event organizers to produce safe, well-organized, compliant community events.
