Special Events

A Special Event is an event that may occupy all or part of Town-owned property or may result in the disruption of the local flow of traffic.

    Should you wish to hold a Special Event within the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake, please complete and submit the Special Event Application Form.

    Applications need to be submitted a minimum of 8 weeks prior to the event date.

    Special Event Application Form

    The Special Events Policy and Permit Application Form are being revised to incorporate new provisions, as identified in Parks By-law 5306-21 & 5306A-21, approved by Council on March 22, 2021. Please contact the Clerks Department at 905-468-3266 or specialevents@notl.com if you have questions about the Special Event Application process.

    Where a discrepancy between the Special Event Policy and Parks By-law occurs, Parks By-law 5306-21 & 5306A-21 takes precedence.

    *New in 2022 - the Fire Department fee has been increased to 69.54/hour - the fee will be invoiced and payment must be received prior to issuing the permit
