Special Events

We are adhering to the current Pima County Health Department and Centers for Disease Control guidelines and no special event permits are being issued at this time. The City of Tucson Special Event Review Committee is utilizing these guidelines as our primary criteria.

We are accepting applications for events, and they will be processed in the order in which they are received. However, uncertainty around mitigation of the coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission in our area makes it nearly impossible to predict when the restrictions will be such that it will be safe to move forward with the issuance of permits.

We appreciate your patience and look forward to working with you in the future.


Tucson is home to many great special events. Whether it's the Tucson Rodeo Parade, 4th Avenue Street Fair, St. Patrick's Day celebration, El Tour de Tucson, or The All Souls Procession, Tucson has something for all!
