A Special Event Application is required for all events. The application fee is $35, which includes processing the application form, reserving the date and time of the event, preparing an estimate of costs and fees, and if necessary, a pre-event planning meeting. Additionally, all permit applications have a fee. Application fees are non-refundable and may be applied to the final billing statement. A Special Events Application must also be completed to reserve a park pavilion or the gazebo in Riverside Park. Please review the City of Ypsilanti Special Events Policy (PDF) prior to filling out your application form.
If you have questions regarding the Special Events Application Form, please contact the Special Event Coordinator Wendy Estey.
Please note: Special Event applications for public events will not be accepted during the 2021 special event season to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We are still accepting applications for smaller, private events at parks and pavilions. Please contact the Special Events Coordinator Wendy Estey at (734) 482-9825 if you have any questions. Thank you.
