Special Event Permit

Special Events in the City of Desert Hot Springs

Special events provide benefits to the Desert Hot Springs community and to its visitors.

What Is A Special Event?

Special events include any event or activity taking place on public property such as a city facility, a city street or sidewalk, alley or public-right-of-way.

Are you planning to host a Special Event in the City of Desert Hot Springs?

You must submit a completed Special Event Permit Application online at least sixty days prior to the event and no more than one year in advance of your proposed event date. Applications are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Incomplete applications will not be accepted and will delay processing which could affect the availability of your preferred event date or location.

Upon receiving your completed Special Event Permit Application, a representative from the Recreation and Community Services Department will contact you and serve as your primary point of contact during the processing of your application. Your representative will also serve as the liaison between City department, regulatory agencies and you, the event organizer. Once you have met your permit requirements and paid permit fees, you will be issued a Special Event Permit.
