Block Party Permit

Block Parties are localized, self-organized events that benefit the entire city by creating welcoming, close-knit communities. A block party permit allows you to do the following:

  • close a street in your neighborhood for the gathering
  • obtain an open container permit to responsibly serve alcohol
  • play amplified music
  • invite your neighbors for a community-building event
  • invite a food truck to your block party to serve food

How to Apply:

  • Download as many Street Closure Petitions as you need, and have your neighbors sign in support of the street closure for the party. 
  • Gather necessary documents. You will be asked to upload them at the end of the application.
    • Signed street closure petitions (see above).
    • A map of the location requested for your event
    • A site plan sketch showing barricades for road closures, tents, tables and any other party items
    • Complete contact information for any food trucks that have been invited to serve at the event
  • Fill out the Block Party Application
  • Pay the $40 block party application fee, plus a $1.50 processing fee at the end of your online application.

What you need to know:

  • Due to noise ordinance and the Golden municipal code, amplified music must end by 9:30 p.m. on weekdays or 10:30 p.m. on weekends.
  • Make sure your completed application is submitted no less than 21 days from the intended date of your event. Applications submitted with less than 21 days from the date of the event will NOT be considered for approval.
