Community Event Permits

We are excited that you have chosen the City of Lafayette as the location for your event. To make the event application experience as smooth and efficient as possible, we have created a step-by-step process to help you plan your event and understand the requirements associated with holding a community event in the City.

The City Clerk’s office will be your primary point of contact at the City and will coordinate most approvals internally. Please plan to submit your complete event application at least 60 days prior to your event (if you expect more than 200 attendees, consider submitting your complete application earlier to receive full approval before you need to begin advertising). Be advised that certain procedures may be lengthy, such as acquiring proof of insurance, obtaining a special event liquor license, developing a traffic control plan, etc.

If you have questions about the process, please email We look forward to working with you to obtain approval for your event and thank you for choosing the City of Lafayette.
