Permits

Outdoor Event & Festival Permitting Process

Most major events and festivals in the city of Atlanta require some sort of permit. The process for obtaining these permits is handled by the Mayor’s Office of Special Events (MOSE)

As a part of the process applicants must notify the NPU of their plans and in many cases appear before the NPU to obtain a recommendation. However, the place to start is with MOSE to learn about the entire process.
