Host an Event or Festival
The City of Brockville’s Festival and Events Guidance Document is designed for event organizers looking to host small or large events within the City of Brockville. It provides advice, assistance, and regulatory requirement to assist you with your event planning.
This guidance document is designed specifically for organizers looking for information on hosting an outdoor public event or festival in public spaces (City Parks or Streets), however most of the information will be helpful for large private events, or public events that take place at other facilities in the city even if they are not on city property or streets.
If you are planning a festival or event in the City of Brockville, please read through this guidance document in its entirety prior to contacting City Staff. A Facility Use Application is required for any outdoor event on public property, and you should plan to submit your application and other documentation as soon as possible to ensure that your event can proceed as planned.
Please note that in addition to your facility use application, there are specific requirements under the Ontario Building Code for tents at your event, and most recently, for stages which now require a building permit.
