We are pleased you have chosen Parkville as the site for your community event and are sure you will find a welcoming environment among the businesses, merchants, employees and residents of Parkville.
A number of City departments may be involved in the logistics necessary to produce a safe and successful community event. As a result, the City requires a special event application and may require other documentation before an event can take place.
In an effort to simplify the application procedures for event organizers, the City has prepared this application information and an event rules and conditions guidebook. As you read through the application information and guidebook to complete the special event application, please be aware that these documents have been developed to address a wide span of event types and elements. You need only provide information about the elements that relate to your particular event.
City staff is available to answer your questions to ensure you have a successful event. Please feel free to call Parks & Recreation Director Brittanie Propes at (816) 741-7676 once you review the information below.
