First Amendment Events

Freedom of Speech, the press, religion, and assembly are rights, not privileges. However, the courts have recognized that activities associated with the exercise of these rights may be reasonably regulated to protect legitimate government itnerests. Therefore, in order to protect park resources, the NPS may regulate certain aspects of First Amendment activities, such as the time, the place and the manner in which they are conducted. It is the conduct associated with the exercise of these rights that is regulated, and never the content of the message.

A few guidelines:

  1. There are no fees associated with First Amendment rights permits.
  2. No public assembly permits shall be issued for a period in excess of seven days.
  3. No sale or distribution of printed matter permits shall be issued for a period in excess of 14 consecutive days.
