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

*Permits will only submit when all required fields are complete!
**Chrome, Safari & any browser other than Internet Explorer must save the application then submit (submit button only works with IE). Please submit electronically if at all possible as we are moving to a paperless system. Help us save trees! Thank you.
