City of Buckeye Special Event Permit and Application
We want to permit safe events that do not adversely affect the quality of life for Buckeye residents. If you’re planning a special event, you may be required to complete a Special Event Permit Application and an Arizona Department of Liquor Licenses and Control Application for Special Event License. We’re here to help, not only with getting the permit, but also with coordinating your plans to meet City regulations. To help make sure your event goes off without a hitch, your application will be reviewed by appropriate City departments, including Public Works, Streets, Police, Fire, Community Development and Risk Management.
Do You Need a Special Event Permit for That?
Generally, Special Event Permits are required for any scheduled outdoor public gathering involving the use of, or having an impact on public property, facilities, parks, streets, sidewalks, rights-of-way, vacant land and parking lots.
- Events with outdoor amplified sound
- Events that have impacts on nearby residents and businesses
- Events that require street closures
You Don't Need a Special Permit for That
The temporary use of private property in a manner that varies from its current land use may require a temporary use permit. Examples may include weddings, funeral ceremonies, elections, private yard sales, bake sales, Christmas tree and pumpkin sales, lot car washes and activities such as retail sales promotions.
These examples do not require a special event permit; however they may require a Temporary Use Permit or other related permits from the Development Services Department. View the Temporary Use Permit Process Guide for additional information.
