Special Events are the celebrations that bring people from all over the community and visitors together in public spaces in the City. The City of Lenoir recognizes the importance of these events in enriching the quality of life in Lenoir and in encouraging economic development. In order to plan for the best use of city resources in supporting special events, the City has adopted a Special Event Permit process for events that require any of the following:

  • City facilities or buildings
  • City staff or city equipment
  • Closure of a city street or streets
  • Traffic control
  • Crowd control or public safety

The first step in the permit process is to complete a City of Lenoir Special Events Permit Application.  For a copy of the permit that may be completed, saved, and printed, click below.
