Planning Your Special Event In Coral Gables

Special events are a great way to highlight your organization, and the community to both visitors and residents of Coral Gables. It is the City of Coral Gables’ objective to help make sure that the event is safe, successful and planned effectively.

You Need to Obtain a Special Events Permit if...

  • Event is open to the general public (with or without charge).

  • Event takes place at a City of Coral Gables facility, on public property or in the right of way.

  • Event requires City services

  • Event involves closure or modification of traffic flow of local streets or any arterial street.

The submission of a Special Events Permit Application may be one of several applications an event organizer may need to submit. The responses to questions in the application will help the City inform you of other necessary permits and approvals needed.

For additional information on special events please contact Norma-Milena Gavarrete at 305-460-5607 or via email at or by mail at 405 University Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33134.
