Special Event Permit Application

Important Information Regarding the Impact of COVID-19 on Special Events

The City of Fremont will permit events as allowed under State and/or regional directives, provided that the events go through the City's special events permitting process and the events follow any and all applicable State/Regional guidelines.  

The COVID-19 Pandemic remains a very fluid situation.  While it is anticipated that the State of California and the Alameda County will soon loosen guidelines allowing various activities, there is no guarantee that your proposed event will be permitted. This City will permit events as allowed under the State and County’s health guidelines at the time of permit issuances, typically two weeks prior to a scheduled event. For details on the State’s Health Order and COVID restrictions, please visit the State of California's website.

Vehicle-Based Gathering during COVID-19 Shelter in Place Order
