Lynchburg is a great place to enjoy many diverse private, cultural and civic events. Throughout the year dozens of large and small events are conducted on City streets, public property, parks and public facilities. Special events can be as intimate as a family reunion or as large as the Virginia Ten-Miler! The City has many different facilities, and one of them is sure to be the right choice for your event.
The City of Lynchburg grants different permits for different special events. The process provides citizens and event organizers a single point of contact to make coordinating City services (if needed) as simple as possible.
There are three steps which must be followed to receive your City permit:
To determine which permit your event needs, read and complete our Facility, Park Use and Special Event Questionnaire. The questionnaire will tell you what kind of event permit you need. Please note that reservations are not completed until
First, call our office at (434) 455-5858 to check on availability of your facility or park. Then, fill out the applicable application completely, including signature.
Mail a hard copy of your completed application, with attached questionnaire and any applicable fees to Parks and Recreation, at 301 Grove Street. You may also drop off your application and pay any fee at our administrative offices, 2704 Concord Turnpike.
For Special Event Permit applications only, contact Sharon Brown at (434) 455-5871.
If you require a Special Event Permit, please remember that the permit must be completed 60 days in advance.
