Special Event Permit Requires Adobe Reader.

Special Events:
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 hold that event.

Events that are considered special events and will require a Special Event Permit:

  • Exceed pavilion or park capacity.
  • Take place in a non-designated day use or camping area.
  • Are advertised and open to the public.
  • Charge an entry fee.
  • Allow vendor sales at the event.
  • Involve the service or sale of alcohol.
  • Constitute a substantial risk to Douglas County, it’s Parks and/or the public.
Special Event fees:
25 Attendees and under $25  
26 Attendees to 50 $50  
51 Attendees to 75 $75  
76 Attendees to 100 $100
  • $50 per each additional 50 Attendees
  • Special Event fees will be cumulative for each additional day of the event, at the rate of 50% of the initial fee.

    $10.00 non-refundable administrative fee will be added to the Special Event fee.

    When a Special Event Permit is required and a pavilion has been rented, the Special Event fee will be reduced by 50%.

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

    Contact the Douglas County Parks Department at 541-957-7001 for additional information.

    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:
