Demonstrations & Public Gatherings

A public gathering permit is required for groups of people who wish to hold assemblies, meetings, gatherings, demonstrations, parades, or other public expressions of views on park property.

Gatherings of 25 or more people may not require a permit. The easiest way to determine whether your small group needs a permit is to fill out the application form and contact the park.

There is no fee for public gathering permits. Applications must be received at least four business days before the public gathering begins.
