Special Event Permits are required for any organized activity involving the use of, or having impact upon, public property, public facilities, parks, beaches, sidewalks, street areas or the temporary use of private property in a manner that varies from its current land use.
Applications for permits must be filed with the City of Oceanside, at City Hall East, not less than sixty (60) nor more than three hundred sixty-five (365) days prior to the proposed activity date. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Dates will not be held without receiving an application and the $150 processing fee. Only one date per application unless the event is consecutive days.
For help in determining whether your event qualifies as a special event, please visit the Special Events Planning Guide.
