If you are not familiar with Bandelier, a pre-visit is encouraged. The location where the event is to take place needs to be determined before the day of the event. There may be special restrictions in the area that could limit access.

Filming Permit

Filming permits are issued on an individual basis based on the size of the project (movie, commercial, etc.), how many staff are needed for supervision, and how much time will be involved. Additional fees may be required depending on the situation. Call for details.

Any individual or business leading commercial tours or other commercial enterprises within Bandelier's boundaries need to first have an Incidental Business Permit.
