In addition to the many events hosted by Kzoo Parks throughout the year, you can host your own special events for everyone to enjoy! Special Events are defined as events of general public interest, of temporary duration, and that are open to the public in a non-discriminatory manner. If your event falls under this description you can request the use of parks or public spaces for your event and help bring our community together.
To ensure time for review and approval, all event applications must be submitted at least 60 days prior to an event.
Check out the Special Event Fact Sheet to see the kinds of thing you'll need to be thinking about to host a successful event.
