Special Event Permits


Citizens or groups wishing to conduct a special event in Campbell County must complete and submit a special event application should their event meet any of the following criteria:

  • lasts more than 12 hours
  • more than 250 people in attendance;
  • admission is charged; or
  • a reoccurring event.

In addition, an event site plan may also be required by local health and safety officials, depending upon the nature and size of the event.

Likewise, a request for a noise exception may need to accompany the special event application, if amplified music is to be a part of the event after 10:00 p.m.

Please review the attached informational packet for further information, and directions on how to submit your application request.


Special event applications must be received at least twenty-one (21) days prior to the scheduled event date to be considered for approval. Please note that in order to provide ample time for the review and approval process, it is recommended that applications for larger scale events be submitted at least three months prior to the event date.

Please contact the Campbell County Administration Office with any questions you may have.
