Special Event Process and Applications

The Department of Regional Parks provides regional park and recreation facilities, programs and services for persons residing and visiting Sacramento County. One of the primary missions for Regional Parks is to provide special event opportunities to help residents and visitors become aware of, use and appreciate Sacramento County’s Regional Park system. The intent of our Department is to provide, facilitate, co-sponsor, and coordinate a broad spectrum of special events held in the regional parks that are efficiently managed, wholesome, affordable, accessible, and safe.

Sacramento County Regional Parks currently allows special events in our Regional Parks in addition to sites along the American River Parkway and Dry Creek Parkway.

A Special Event Application must be submitted at least 60 days in advance of your event along with a site map​ and the $100​ application fee. Leisure Services start taking applications in September for the upcoming year

Applications submitted less than 60-days prior to event may be denied or will incur a $150 application filing fee to expedite the permit process

This pa​c​ket is intended to help you understand the special event process and provide tips that will help you facilitate your special event.
