Special Events Permits

You will need to apply for a special events permit if you are planning to host an event in the park where you expect to have a group of 20 or more people. These permits serve as proof that you have permission from the Parks Department to have a group larger than 20 people in any specific area in the park.

Please note:

  • You must apply for a special event permit AT LEAST 30 DAYS IN ADVANCE OF YOUR EVENT.
  • There is a $25.00 processing fee for a special events permit, which can be paid by credit card if you submit your permit online, or by check or money order if you mail your application to us.
  • If you are mailing an application, the address to mail is: 1 Bronx River Parkway, Bronx, NY 10462.
  • We do not give out sound permits to the general public.
