DENVER — Denver Parks and Recreation (DPR) published a new Public Event Policy and announced the 2017 permit application process that will begin on November 1. 

Public Event Policy

The Public Event Policy describes the rules and regulations under which outdoor public events may be scheduled and held within Denver parks.  This new policy supports public events in Denver parks while both safeguarding the parks and rights of residents to access and use the parks. 

DPR leaders worked closely with the community to provide input on current policies and procedures as well as recommend new ones.  The policy was defined through the assistance of a stakeholder committee comprised of representatives from various neighborhoods and organizations as well as public community meetings.  Representatives included event organizers, residents from City Park, Washington Park, Cheesman Park, Stapleton, Park and Recreation Advisory Board Members, and city council staff.
