A Special Event Licence is required for any event held in a public place in which 500 or more people are in attendance, including staff and volunteers.
A licence is also required if an event is to take place on Sturgeon County owned land such as parks, trails, natural areas, roadways, etc.

Even if you do not require a Special Event Licence, you may require other permitting or approvals.
For example; tents over 645 ft2 require development permits
You’ll also require permits if you are planning fireworks, planning for access use or roadways, road allowances and/or ditches.
