Special Event Permit

Thank you for your interest in producing a special event in Ephrata.  Special events have the ability to add to the quality of life in a community both socially and economically. Don’t let the size of this packet intimidate you!  This packet was written with the intent to meet the needs of large events, if your event is a smaller event much of this information may not apply to you.  City staff is always here to help if you have questions.

The purpose of requiring the Special Event Permit is:

  • to understand exactly what is being requested for help from the city so personnel can be scheduled appropriately to avoid paying city staff unnecessary overtime expenses,
  • to ensure that all legal requirements have or will be met, 
  • to protect the taxpayer's investment, and
  • that if necessary the community is aware of what may effect their daily routine.
