Special Events

A permit is required to hold an event within the County right-of way. All Charitable Organizations, Nonprofit Organizations, Private Residences and any event sponsored by Montgomery County must have an approved permit.

***Due to MCDOT’s emergency response to the COVID-19 virus, no applications for special events or block parties planned for 10 or more people will be approved until further notice.  At the conclusion of MCDOT’s emergency response, our office will resume reviewing applications again. We apologize for the inconvenience.***
