Apply for a Permit Ahead of Time
Apply for a permit as soon as event planning begins - at least 30 days prior to the event. By ordinance, Downtown events require applications be submitted 60 days in advance of the event. The permit process takes time - applications must be reviewed and approved by the Department of Public Works, Milwaukee Police Department, and the Alderperson in whose district the event is taking place.
Proposed street closures may be altered at the discretion of the Milwaukee Police Department and the Department of Public Works. The Special Event Permit team will work with the applicant to explore alternatives.
