Special Event Permits 

There are many events, festivals, celebrations, games and gatherings in Fort St. John that are classified as special events. Any event or activity occurring on municipal property (green spaces, parks, streets, sidewalks and parking lots) will need to submit a permit application. If your organization is looking to host a special event on municipal land, this is your first stop!  The Facility Allocation Clerk will assist you in obtaining and providing the appropriate documentation to ensure your event will go without a hitch. Remember, permit applications should be submitted a minimum of 6 weeks before the event.
