  • Your application is tentatively approved and can move forward for processing. You will subsequently receive a list of conditions necessary to receive a permit (including fees). This detailed list will take longer than 10 days.
Please note that we can not confirm 2024 dates until November of 2023 as we need to determine park closures, returning events, and other city events. The date of your application will determine your priority other than due to those factors.
