Special Event Permit Requirements

Many county park facilities are available for rent by permit. If the park does not have a pavilion or indoor facility to rent, you may still be able to hold an event at a park with a Special Event Permit. Call the office for availability and fee information. A permit does not give you exclusive use of a park, only the right to stage that event.

If you will be having a Bounce House, Water Slide, Climbing Wall or any other recreational device, you will need to get a Special Event Permit that includes providing a certificate of insurance.

Please see the Park Department Policy Manual (Section 401) under the Park Advisory Board link to see the guidelines and definitions of a Special Event.

Special Event fees:
1-100 Attendees $75.00
101-300 Attendees $100.00
301-400 Attendees $150.00
401-500 Attendees $200.00
501-600 Attendees $250.00
600 and up Attendees $300.00

Additional electrical and water fees may apply if your event will have a bounce house or water slide.

If an event will introduce extra or unusual hazards to water safety, a Regatta Permit is required to accompany the Special Event Permit. See the Oregon State Marine Board guidelines at:
