Plan a Special Event

What is a special event?  A special event is defined as an occurrence, festival, concert, sporting event, gathering, performance, or the like in or at a public park, outdoor recreation area or facility, or any public parking lot adjacent thereto, where non-alcoholic beverages, food, candy, or other goods may be served. 

​​Special events are a very important part of any community's quality of life.  The City of Idaho Falls sees hundreds of events each year, varying in scope, purpose, cost, and complexity.
