The Council supports and promotes events of all sizes in Wellington City – from major corporate-sponsored events to smaller community events and programmes.
When planning an event, there are responsibilities you need to meet and different kinds of permits and licences you may need to apply for.
Book a beach, park, road, gardens venue or waterfront location for your event. When your booking details are approved, we’ll send you an event permit.
You need to get permission to close a footpath or road for an event. Let us know if your event may affect traffic or if you’re planning a protest march or demonstration.
We can help you access free or reasonably-priced hire equipment if you are organising a community programme or event.
Billboards at Wellington Railway Station and Jervois Quay can be used to promote Wellington City events.
