All applicants are required to pay a non-refundable processing fee of $25 ($20 for Open Culture Event). You can pay the fee online via credit or debit card. This processing fee will not be returned if your application is denied or withdrawn.

Additional fees occur for Farmers Markets, Production Events, Plaza Events and Street Events. Single Block Festivals and Street Festivals have fees determined by the vendor's participation fee. Some Street Events or Plaza Events may be considered civic or charitable in nature, and are therefore subject to a discounted fee rate. Read more about Civic and Charitable Events.
