    Special Events include outdoor events such as festivals, parades and holiday celebrations. Special Events involve outdoor cooking and gathering of people in temporary structures such as tents and canopies.

    Persons wishing to conduct a Special Event must apply to the Grand Rapids Office of Special Events. When an application for conducting a Special Event is granted, the information regarding Special Event Fire Safety Requirements will be provided. A successful application will also generate a request for inspection of the arrangements by the Grand Rapids Fire Prevention Bureau.
