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.
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.
