Welcome to the City of Tempe - Special Events Application

Applications must be submitted a minimum of 60 days prior to the event if the Special Events Task Force Committee requires PD and/or Fire review. This includes, but is not limited to, events with liquor, stages, fencing, etc. All other applications will not be accepted within 30 days of the event. No exceptions!

A site map must accompany your application, preferably on a Google Earth image. 

Liquor Extensions of Premises: 

The City of Tempe’s regulations concerning Temporary Extension of Premises Liquor Permits differ from those of the AZ Department of Liquor License and Control.  Applicants must obtain approval from the Special Events Task Force Committee for any continuing Temporary Extension of Premises Liquor Permits at least once every 6 months.  PLEASE BE ADVISED that the Special Events Task Force Committee in its sole discretion may require applicants to obtain approval more often than 6 months if it sees fit.
