Walk for Opportunity Large Gathering


May 23, 2012


Organizers must acquire permits in order to hold festivals and other large gatherings in the city. Events with at least 250 people require a special event permit, which is issued from Mayor Kasim Reed’s office. Events with less than 250 people must acquire a “large gathering” permit, which is issued by the city’s parks department

NPU-E reviews the permits but can only make recommendations on whether they’re approved or denied. The city doesn’t require that organizers consult neighborhoods directly impacted by the events.
