Special Use Permits

Gatherings and commercial activities in National Parks often require a special use permit. The purpose of these permits is to ensure the protection of the park's natural and cultural resources, as well as to minimize conflicts between park visitors and your guests. Valley Forge National Historical Park is home to many beautiful landscapes, monuments, and historic sites that are ideal venues for a variety of special activities such as cultural programs, picnics, wedding ceremonies, and film and photography projects.

If you are not sure that your event requires a permit or have other questions, call 610-783-1067.
