Special Events

Welcome to the Special Events Office!

We hope this website will be informative and useful as you begin planning your special event, filming, or photo shoot. The Special Events Office is a section of Parks and Recreation. The Special Events Office assists the public by coordinating city services related to various events held at city facilities and public properties. The Special Events Office processes special event and film permits for approximately 200 events every year. The events, which range in size from a birthday party to national sporting events, connect our neighborhoods and showcase the best our citizens and city have to offer.  We look forward to assisting you with your special event or filming needs..

*Due to downtown construction and future closure of Mission Avenue, there will be a moratorium on any NEW events at the beach or the Junior Seau Pier Amphitheater.
