Planning an Event?

The City of New Haven recognizes special events as valuable to the community.

 In the City’s role of both support and regulation of special events, City departments must operate in a consistent and coordinated manner. A special event is defined as an activity or series of activities, specific to an identifiable time and place, produced in conjunction with community organizations often held on public property or city park. Such events may include but are not limited to: filming, protests/rallies, block parties, fund raisers, festivals, runs/races/walks, and other community events.
