Event Permits

Assembly permits are required for events held on City property, including processions, block parties, street fairs, and ceremonies. Generally, any time 10 or more people gather on City property, an assembly permit must be obtained.

To obtain an event permit, you must fill out the Event Permit Application (PDF) and return it with the application fee of $50 to the office of the City Clerk. The application fee may be waived if the Applicant provides documentation showing that it is a registered not-for-profit and/or charitable organization. Among other requirements, the application asks for proof of insurance coverage for the event. Permit applications must be submitted at least 3 weeks in advance of the event.

Event sponsorship is available per Resolution No. 235-2023, City of Newburgh Public Special Events Sponsorship Policy (PDF).
