Plan a Special Event

Thank you for your interest in planning a special event with the City of Litchfield Park.  Litchfield Park City Code requires a permit for all Special Events within city limits.  In general, any organized activity impacting city services or involving the use of public property, public facilities, sidewalks, medians, or street areas requires a permit.   The City of Litchfield Park’s Special Events Permit Application and accompanying instructions will help guide you through the process.


Permit Process

The permit application process begins when you submit a completed Special Event Permit Application.  Keep in mind that acceptance of your application should in no way be construed as final approval or confirmation of your request. Upon receipt of your application it will be given to Tricia Kramer, Community & Recreation Services Director.  She will help guide you through the permit process.  She will also distribute copies of your application to all City departments affected by your application for review. During the review process, you will be notified if your event requires additional information, permits, or licenses. You will be allowed time to provide us with all pending documents.  Delays in providing these items may delay our ability to finish our review and issue a Special Event Permit for your event.  You may be contacted individually by these departments if they have specific questions or concerns about your event.



A completed application may be filed as early as six months before the event, but must be received no later than 30 days before the actual event date.  The earlier you can submit your application the easier your application process will be.   Your completed application should be submitted to: 

Litchfield Park City Hall

214 W Wigwam Blvd.

Litchfield Park, AZ 85340



The City strives to keep fees as low as possible by charging only for the cost of processing the application and city services. In addition to the cost of inspections, other fees such as a building permit fee will apply for tents, stages, etc.  Depending on the type of event, respective fees may vary.   Effective January 1, 2004, the fee for a Special Event will be $15.00, plus $15.00 per vendor, up to a maximum of $1,000.00.
