Special Events & Commercial Sponsorship

Applications for special events should be submitted to the City's Events Coordinator at least 60 days prior to the desired date of the event. We recommend 90 days prior for large events. To ensure reserving the date of choice, it is recommended the application process be completed as soon as possible since all special events taking place on City property, requesting a waiver of City ordinances, or making use of City equipment must be approved by City Council.

The sponsor must email the Events Coordinator or call 850-816-4812 to reserve a date for the event. The permitting procedures and required application form are available below. Please complete all necessary forms and return them to the Events Coordinator for review. Forms can be returned by mail, in person, or via email. All applicable fees must be paid within 30 days of the event date. 

Any event requiring a state road closure (Stewart Street parades, for example) must complete the state road closure permit application and submit it to the Florida Department of Transportation. *Please note that this does require extra time for FDOT approval.

The City of Milton looks forward to assisting you with a safe and successful event. Please call or email with any questions or comments.
