Community Event Planning

The Community Events Administrator will help you with the permit process for public parks, roads and venues. 

Contact form
Ph: 403-851-2500

Contact us early in your planning process. Major event applications must be submitted a minimum six weeks in advance of the event date.

Toilets in Mitford Park and the Cochrane Historic Ranche Site are available from the May long weekend until the last weekend in September (weather permitting). They automatically open at 7am and lock at 9pm.

Why do you need a Festival and Event Permit?

A Festival and Event application will identify when organized activities are planned in a park, road or venue so we can avoid scheduling conflicts.

It also ensures groups who are organizing activities in public spaces have the appropriate insurance and licensing.

Permit holders have priority and permission to use the space over non-permit holders.

Forms

Please complete and send a scanned copy or deliver it in person to 101 RancheHouse Road.
