Special Event Permit Requirement
Some qualifying events on Dickinson County managed parks, recreation areas, or state forest land may require a special event permit. If your event meets one of the following criteria, a special event permit will be required and you will need to complete the rest of the application:
1. An organized race, tournament, exhibition or demonstration, or other planned event in which an admission fee is charged, prizes are awarded, or competition occurs between participants
2. A planned event that, due to its nature, potential or actual size, or length, would likely adversely impact the use of the area by the public
3. An event in which there is a free will offering or donation request
4. An event in which private vendors will be selling food, souvenirs or other merchandise.
NOTE: Groups who co-sponsor/partner with the Dickinson County Conservation Board on an event must have a special event permit if you charge a registration/activity fee, accept donations or free will offering, fund raise, or invite private vendors to sell food and other items at the event.
