**UPDATE** COVID-19 and Special Event Permits

All SALT LAKE CITY Special Event, Film, Demonstration, and Block Party Permits are currently restricted due to COVID-19.

Salt Lake City Special Event Permitting Office is following SL County Health Department and Utah State Governor’s Office guidelines for allowing gatherings on SLC public property, find more of that information here, https://coronavirus.utah.gov/utahs-moderate-risk-phase/ . Follow Utah State, Salt Lake County, and Salt Lake City government announcements to obtain more information on when the restrictions may change.

The Special Event Permit office will remain open 9-5 M-F, BY PHONE OR EMAIL ONLY.

We will continue to accept all applications at this time, if they are submitted by the normal deadline for each permit type. ALL DATES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Unfortunately, at this time due to the changing situation, we cannot give a definitive date for when we will be able to issue permits again.

We encourage you to use your best judgement during the event planning process including; abiding by all CDC and State/County Health Department recommendations, ensuring all other fees/contracts paid outside of the city are refundable or can be used for a changed event date, and keeping clear lines of communication open with the Event Permitting office and all other vested parties. We are here to help you and answer any questions along the way.

Please be safe and feel free to contact us.
