Event Permits & Information

The Parking Management Division processes permit applications for events, such as festivals, 5K races, parades, block parties, etc., involving the dedicated use of streets and parking lots for temporary periods. An Event Permit Application will need to be submitted for all events that take place on City property and/or require City resources (police assistance, street closure, City parking spaces, noise ordinance variance request, etc.). This event permit application is also required for events requesting to serve, sell, or provide alcoholic beverages on City property, including City parks.  If you will be using one of the City Parks or Trails, you must complete a Fayetteville Parks and Recreation Event Permit Form.

Deadline for Application submittal is based on the following:

  • 21 days prior to event date: Application does not request closure(s) of a street or City parking lot or closure request(s) is for less than 8 hours.
  • 45 days prior to event date: Application requests a street or City parking lot closure(s) for more than 8 hours.
