The City of Bristol has created a new digital form to apply for special event permits! We are no longer accepting paper applications.
Bristol requires a permit for all special events taking place within the City. The application must be submitted 45 days prior to the event. Once submitted, the application will be reviewed by various City Departments. Certain Departments may require additional information.
To view our special event permit guidelines, the application form itself, and for more information, please visit our Special Event Permits page.
Understanding there will be a transition period, our team is happy to help walk you through the process. Please contact Public Works at 860-584-6125 for assistance.
