Events that do not require authorization

You do not need authorization for an event which fewer than 50 people will attend. 

Events that require authorization

Events with 50 to 3,000 people in attendance require prior authorization.

Authorization without street closing

You must get authorization if your event includes the following:

  • sound amplification
  • sales of promotional items
  • alcohol sales and consumption 
  • special structures such as tents (in authorized areas of the park only) 

Authorization with street closing

To close Voie Camillien-Houde, Chemin Remembrance, or both streets, your event must have an added value, such as promoting Montréal locally or internationally. Streets cannot be closed longer than one day.

How do you apply?

You must complete the public event application and submit it to the festivals and events division.

Plan on submitting your application at least 90 days before the date on which you plan to hold the event.

See the Promoter’s Guide for information about preparatory steps and how to submit an application.
