Special Events
The City of Bonita Springs loves to celebrate and is proud to host many events year round. Whether the event is a small neighborhood festival, charity run/walks or concerts, the Riverside Park area is a popular park for special events. The  Special Events Packet to the left was developed to assist you, the Event Organizer, through the permit process.  It is our goal to assist you in planning a safe and successful event.  It is your responsibility to make sure that both the park users and the surrounding neighborhood is safe and not unduly impacted. As the Event Organizer it is also your responsibility to ensure that participants are provided with a safe and enjoyable event. Please let us know if you have any questions. You can call or email us. All permitting questions should be directed to [email protected]

Completed special event permit applications take 45 days to process with all necessary attachments and without errors. Please take this into consideration when planning your event.
