Event Permit Application

Event Permit Application Procedure

If an individual, business or organization is planning a special event on any property owned by the City of Jeffersonville, or is requesting any type of city services for the event, a Special Event Permit must be issued. The permit application should be submitted at least 60 days prior to the event in order to be considered.

The applicant is required to attend a multi-departmental Special Events Committee meeting, which takes place each month at Jeffersonville City Hall on the first Tuesday of the month at 10:00 AM. An invitation to the meeting will be emailed once the application, route plan and/or site plan is received. To be placed on the agenda, email your completed Event Permit Application and documents to:

This is the first step in a two step process. Once the Special Events Committee has reviewed it will then be taken to the Board of Public Works for final approval.

If the event is approved, the permit fee is due (usually set at $150 per application, but may be increased depending on use of city services, risk assessment or other factors). All approved applicants must provide a valid Certificate of Insurance document listing the City of Jeffersonville, 500 Quartermaster Court, Jeffersonville, IN 47130 as additional insured for at least $1,000,000. The insurance document is due 14 days after the event is approved.

*Please note: For the remainder of 2024, the City will not be approving any requests for run/walk or bicycling events that should require street closures within the downtown area.
