Kalaupapa National Historical Park issues permits for events such as filming, photography, public assembly, religious events, and special park uses.
Special Use Permits
Special Park Use Permits are required for short-term activities that takes place in the park and provides a benefit to an individual, group or organization, rather than the public at large; written authorization is required and some degree of management control from the NPS to protect park resources and the public interest; and are not prohibited by law or regulation. The National Park Service may authorize a special park use permit providing the activity will not cause derogation of the park's resources or values, visitor experiences, or the purpose for which the park was established.
The completion and submission of a application and the processing fee ($100.00) does not guarantee a permit will be authorized. In addition to the application fee, the park is authorized to recover and retain all costs associated with monitoring and managing special use permits and a location fee except for First Amendment activities. Any permit request received less than 30 days in advance will be processed as quickly as possible but may not be issued because of time constraints. Download the application for a Special Use permit. Events that need a permit include athletic events, parades, public spectator attractions, ceremonies, weddings, memorializations, and First Amendment activities (public assemblies, meetings, gatherings, demonstrations).
