Special Event Permit Criteria: If you are planning an organized activity on public property within the City of San Clemente, you may need a "Special Event Permit". Special Events are usually open to the public, impact public right-of-way, and involve activities outside of normal policy and use of public property. For example (but not limited to): Block Parties, Parades, Surf Contests, Athletic Events, Carnivals, and other large public events all require a Special Event Permit. Activities such as construction projects, funerals or activities that do not at least partially impact the public right-of-way, nor attract more than 20 people during any given 24-hour period do not require a special event permit.
