Are you interested in hosting a special event in the Town of Monument and wondering if you need a Special Event Permit?
The Town of Monument defines special events as “a short-term activity usually lasting one to three days including, but limited to: concerts, parades, circuses, fairs, festivals, car shows, sports events, marathons, running events, bicycle races, and tours.”
Such events require a special permit if any of the following conditions are met:
The event requires a street closure, significantly interrupts the flow of traffic in public rights-of-way, or limits access to private commercial property.
The event is estimated to have one hundred (100) or more people participating or attending and is to take place in a public park or at Monument Lake,
The event is an outdoor event of any size and includes the sale of consumption of alcoholic beverages to or by the public. (A Special Event Liquor Permit is also required for this purpose.)
A recently passed Town of Monument Ordinance requires that applications for events with anticipated attendance of one thousand (1,000) or more people be approved by the Board of Trustees. Therefore, Special Event Applications meeting that threshold must be received at least one hundred twenty (120) days before the date of the event.Applications for events under that threshold must be submitted at least thirty (30) days before the event. Applications for Special Event Liquor Permits shall be submitted at least forty-five (45) days before the event.
Please submit completed Special Event Permit Application packets and applicable fees to the Town Clerk’s Office at 645 Beacon Lite Rd. Monument, CO 80132. Contact Erica Romero with any questions at 719-884-8022
A neighborhood Block Party is a great way for neighbors to connect!
In Monument, we value neighborhood events as a way to foster relationships and strengthen connections between community members. Block Parties are localized, self-organized events that benefit the entire Town by creating welcoming, close-knit communities.
If you are interested in hosting a neighborhood Block Party, please be aware of the following:
You will be required to obtain the permission of your neighbors to close the street. Contacting your neighbors personally and getting their signatures will demonstrate neighborhood support for the event.
Collector and Arterial streets are generally not eligible for closure.
Block Party Permits are reviewed by various Town departments and outside agencies prior to a Block Party Permit being issued, therefore, we ask that your completed application be submitted no less than 14 days from the intended date of your event.
