Celebrating the City's Special Events

Collage of different events

From major conventions and international sporting events to community based festivals, the City of San Diego is proud to host hundreds of events every year, including runs, walks, triathlons, festivals and parades.

The Office of Special Events provides permitting assistance for events that occur on public property. Through our one stop permitting process, an event organizer can work with the City to plan all aspects of their event that relate to the use of public property.
