On-Line Special Event Parking Permit Application



APPLICATIONS RELATED TO THE UPCOMING REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION (RNC): The Department of Public Works is not accepting applications for Special Events within an area bounded by 20th Street, Greenfield Avenue, North Avenue, and Lake Michigan during the Republican National Convention, July 15-18, 2024. Instead, in order to provide a safe and orderly opportunity for speakers and protesters as close to the Convention as possible, the City anticipates the imminent release of a parade permit and speakers platform registration within sight and sound of the Convention. Please see this page or https://city.milwaukee.gov/RNC for further details as they become available.

A Special Event Parking Permit allows for the temporary occupancy of a curb lane in the public right-of-way to park vehicles in conjunction with a special event (FOR EXAMPLE:  valet parking for special event, film production vehicle parking, shuttle bus parking, etc).  

Fees are only assessed if the permitted space requires parking signs ($16 each) or meter hoods ($9 per meter per day). 

If you have any questions, please contact the Department of Public Works Special Event Permit Office at (414) 286-3915.
