Fun Facts
Did you know that over 200 special events are held annually in the City of Naples by public, private and non-profit groups and organizations?

Application Process
To host an event on City/private property, you must obtain a special event permit from the City of Naples Community Services Department. If you are planning on using a City of Naples park (Cambier, Fleischmann, etc.) for your event, you will need to start your application process at the park first.

  • Step 1: Fill out the Special Permit application form by following this link - Forms Page.
  • Step 2: Complete permit application and gather all documents needed for submission. This special event application guide can help answer any questions you might have.
  • Step 3: Turn in completed application and documents to the Community Services Admin Office located at 280 Riverside Circle.

Our staff will carefully review your information upon completion of your special event application. You will be notified if additional information is needed and we request the application and documents be submitted sixty (60) days prior to the event being held.

Please note: Acceptance of your application should in no way be construed as final approval or confirmation of your request. Staff will process your application internally through the necessary departments for approval.
