All groups wishing to hold an event in Hudson River Park must obtain a written permit from Hudson River Park. A “Special Event” is defined as a group activity including, but not limited to, a performance, meeting, assembly, contest, exhibit, ceremony, parade, athletic competition, reading, or picnic involving more than 20 people.

Special Event does not include casual park use by visitors or tourists, where no permit is required.

Permit applications must be submitted at least 15 business days in advance of your requested date. Submitting an application does not guarantee you will be granted a permit. All permit applications require a non-refundable $25 fee. Additional permit fees for the rental of space will be assessed based on the nature of the event.

Rules Regulations For External Events

Permit holders are responsible for removing all garbage from the area and taking it with you when you leave, and adhering to the Park’s rules & regulations for hosting an event.
