Special Events
The City of Lincoln is pleased that you are planning a special event in Lincoln. Putting on a successful event depends on cooperation and participation from many people, including City of Lincoln employees. A Special Event is defined as “any event hosting a group of people in which events take place on any public property or within the public right of way which obstruct, delay or otherwise interfere with the normal flow of vehicular or pedestrian traffic, or which does not comply with applicable traffic laws or controls.” Basically, it's an organized event, outdoors, and on city property.

If your event requires street closures, special setup and/or planning strategies, your organization will be required to meet with the City’s Special Events and Incidents Committee. It is mandatory that a representative from your organization attend this committee meeting. For more information, please contact

Whether you are looking to have a small gathering at the park or a large event, the City of Lincoln Recreation Department will be happy to help you!
