If you wish to hold a special event on city property (in one of our parks or on one of our trails) you must complete a Special Event Permit 30 days prior to your event. All permits must be approved by the city before you can proceed, so please check with us for rules, regulations and availability before you begin to plan your event.
Events that fall under this category are open to the public, might have an admission fee, or involve more than an ordinary family picnic (e.g., parades, street dances, 5K's, community BBQ's, festivals, fundraisers, etc.)
You must also secure Special Event Insurance and provide a certificate of insurance listing the city as additional insured, in order to have an event on city property. Please contact us if you have questions about obtaining special event insurance. Call us @ 715-395-7270 or send us an email and we'd be happy to provide more information and point you in the right direction.
A sample Certificate of Liability Insurance is available. Your certificate must be for $1,000,000 General Aggregate, the description must have the event and date listed, and the City must be listed as Additional Insured in the Certificate Holder box. Please share the sample certificate with your insurance agent so that they are aware of the City's requirements. Please note the areas highlighted in yellow on the sample.
