Special Events

The City Welcomes a variety of Special Events in the downtown area to enliven the atmosphere for all of those who live, work and play in Salt Lake. The Events are family-friendly, high-quality events that enhance the energy.

Events include a variety of quality, artistic, education, recreational and entertainment programs and activities for residents and visitors alike.

When an organization uses City property for an event, Real Estate Services must determine if the City space is open to the public or being used exclusively for the event. One criteria we consider is if the plans include the assembling of a barrier or fence restricting entrance. Another consideration is whether an entrance fee is charged. If the event is determined exclusive, the Real Estate Services will enter into an agreement. If alcohol is part of the event, an Alcohol Concession Agreement is necessary. This agreement is a separate agreement from the DABC. It is legal authorization to allow the event to have alcohol on City property.
