Frequently Asked Questions about the Special Event Permit Process
How do i know if my event requires a special event permit from the Village?
Please consult with the Administration Department at (630) 469-5000 prior to submitting a special event permit application to discuss whether your event falls under this policy.  Generally, commercial or non-residential outdoor events that will take place on public or private property or which will take place in public right-of-ways (i.e. street, sidewalk, parking lot), or that will be held on public property where liquor is to be served fall under the scope of this policy.  Generally, indoor private events (i.e. invitation only) are exempt from the application process, but are required to apply for all applicable liquor licenses.

When must my application be submitted prior to the event?
Special event permit applications must be submitted at least sixty (60) days in advance of the event. 

Is there a permit application fee?

There is a $50 application fee required for every special event application. Please make checks payable to the Village of Glen Ellyn.

For more information, please consult the Special Event Guidelines.
