Special Event Permits

 Rallies, Walks, Runs, Block Parties, Fundraisers, Car Shows, Weddings & More!

Any event taking place on or in City of Lethbridge roadways or public land (such as parks) is registered through the City of Lethbridge's Recreation & Culture Department. This is to ensure that events are not planned or booked in conjunction with another event, or during regularly scheduled City of Lethbridge maintenance. Examples of special events are rallies, walks/runs, fundraisers, car shows, block parties, road closures, etc.

Event Application Deadlines:

  • Large Community Events: October 1 for events occurring the following calendar year. *This is to arrange for picnic shelter use before bookings open to the general public.
  • All Other Applications: One month prior to the event date
