The Town of Oliver welcomes special events in the public spaces of our community. Special Events give residents and visitors exposure to their favourite artists and athletes, allow communities to gather and celebrate together, and contribute to the local economy.
Through the Special Event application process the Town is able to assist organizers and facilitate special requests to make sure all events are safe and do not negatively affect the community. By involving municipal departments, we ensure all events are well organized and appropriately supported from the planning stages through to leaving the site in the same condition found prior to use.
Organizers please read the Special Event Policy to insure all requirements are met before applying.
Applicants MUST contact Oliver Parks & Recreation if the event is utilizing Oliver Parks. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org | Main Office: 250 498 4985
Special Event Application $35.00
