Plan a Public Event

Cider Days Event Climbing Event Sounds Exciting Event
Thank you for your interest in hosting an event in the City of Lakewood! We are here to help you navigate the various City Departments and their respective roles in your event. Whether you are planning a festival, a 5k run, a neighborhood block party or a family picnic, this information is designed to point you in the right direction.

Let's Get Started

Even if your event does not meet the qualifications necessary to require submission of the Community & Special Event Application, the information contained with the application can serve as a great resource for you and we encourage you to start by reviewing the information packet in detail. The packet includes a list of the common permits and licenses required for events issued by the City of Lakewood and some of our sister jurisdictions. The packet also provides event organizers with a checklist and timeline for securing approvals.


What's Next?

As soon as possible, we encourage you to contact the respective City office(s) listed below to check availability and address any questions you may have regarding a specific site, facility or venue. If you are unsure of who to contact, please call the Community Events Coordinator at 303-987-7859.
