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.
