Applications & Permits

Special Event Permit Applications

Any organized activity with more than 25 people using or impacting private commercial or public property, facilities, parks, sidewalks or roadways in a manner that varies from its standard land use requires a Special Event Permit. All Town of Mount Pleasant ordinances (zoning, noise, signage, etc.) must be adhered to in any event; a permit does not constitute permission to violate any ordinance. TOMP does not permit events involving the Ravenel Bridge. The Special Event Permit ordinance can be viewed here.

Please fill out the appropriate application for your event type and submit with all applicable attachments and fees to the Town of Mount Pleasant.

Mobile Food Vendors at Events (Food Trucks & Trailers)

If you are planning on having mobile food vendors at your event, they must have a current Mount Pleasant Business License and inspection permit sticker from the Mount Pleasant Fire Department. Information and application for the permit can be viewed here.

For Memorial Waterfront Park events, scroll down to that section.
