City Event Permit Application Requirements and Procedure

If an individual or group is planning a public Block Party, Parade, Motorcade, Rally, Public Gathering or Walk/Run on any property owned by the City of Jeffersonville or Jeffersonville Parks and Recreation Department and is requesting any City services for said event, the Event Producer must complete a City Event Permit Application and agree to the requirements and submit at least 60 days before the event date in order to be considered.

All approved events must provide a valid Certificate of Insurance document listing the City of Jeffersonville as an additional insured for $1,000,000 at least 14 business days before the event.
