The Office of Special Events exists to serve the community and to guide event planners through the special event permitting procedure. All reservations for special events, such as festivals, runs / walks, parades, block parties and citywide holiday celebrations that take place on public property are initiated with our office. We have created a user-friendly, one-stop process to facilitate a successful event.
Special Events help build a sense of belonging and community pride. The City of Tampa Office of Special Events also produces events that enhance the image of the city and highlight its cultural diversity.
