Permits & Insurance

Park Permits and Restrictions

If you want to use park picnic space, you will need to reserve it in advance through Denver Parks and Rec to ensure it is available for your party. A permit is required if you expect 25 or more people.  Most alcoholic beverages are not allowed in picnic areas in parks.  Check your location for details.  Learn more...

Street/Alley Closures

Public Works Permit Operations is your single point of contact for block party permits. The permit is free.

In addition to the free permit, and to encourage neighbors to gather during Denver Days, the city is waiving its requirement for block party insurance. Applicants who still wish to purchase insurance for their event are provided with an easy way to do so.
