Guidelines for Special Event Applications

Please be sure to complete all sections of the application. Incomplete applications will result in delays in the review process and could result in a denied Special Event Application.  All proposed activities and events are subject to the approval of the City of Ventnor City. The city and applicable reviewing offices will not consider your event for approval if the application is incomplete. You will be notified if the application is approved.

Prior to the issuance of an approved Special Event Permit, costs incurred are the sole expense and risk of the event organizer/promoter.

Do not assume that all aspects of the event will be approved. You may be asked to amend your plan(s) or event(s) based on, but not limited to; the availability of services, scheduling of other events and/or the need to maintain order and safety in and around the event.

Therefore, you are encouraged not to make any arrangements for your event until written approval from the City has been received.

Applications MUST be received at least 45 days prior to event.  All applications will be reviewed either by the Safety Committee or the Recreation Board at their scheduled monthly meeting.  You may be required to present a summary of the event at a meeting if applicable to your event.  You will be contacted with a date and time for appearance.

Please ensure you complete any necessary secondary permit requirements needed at this time, additional fees may be required.

Completion of this application does not guarantee the approval of the event.

City Hall
6201 Atlantic Avenue
