Special Event Permitting

The Special Events Division coordinates permitting for events hosted by promoters and organizers using public or private property within the limits of the city.

Festivals, events and weddings planned for Hollywood Beach will be subject to an additional approval and permitting process by the Department of Environmental Protection. Hollywood Beach is a turtle nesting habitat and we take great care when planning an event during turtle nesting season, from March 1 to October 31 of each year.

The Special Events team is available to answer questions and assist with all facets of your event planning.
