Special Event Permit
APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE COUNTY NO FEWER THAN 30 DAYS PRECEDING THE DATE OF THE EVENT.

Dinwiddie County’s special event ordinances are contained in Article II, Special Events, of Chapter 3, Amusements, of the Dinwiddie County Code.  Specifically, Section 3-27 of the Code requires a special entertainment permit be issued in order for any person to stage, promote or conduct any special event in the County.  Section 3-16 of the Code defines a “special event” as “a preplanned event to be held in the county for purposes of entertainment, celebration, amusement, cultural recognition, amateur sports, demonstrations of skill, competition, or similar activities, sponsored by an individual, group, and/or organization, entry to which is either:
(1) open to the general public; or
(2) on the basis of paid admissions or solicited contributions.” 

Special events may significantly impact public property, normal vehicle and pedestrian traffic, and/or the safety of citizens and visitors, thus mandating the use of county services. Preapproval and advisement by appropriate county staff is required. “Special events” may include, but are not limited to: circuses, carnivals, foot races, bike races, parades/marches, festivals, concert series, music festivals, celebrations, tours, car shows, street dances, sidewalk sales, air shows, and turkey shoots”.
