Special Event / Street Closure Information


The City of Montpelier is proud to host events that have public benefit to our community. Our Special Event/Street Closure policy outlines the process and requirements for requesting a Street Closure or those seeking to hold a parade/march.  Permission to use public space is a privilege which is granted at the sole discretion of the City Council. 

As part of that policy, City staff will provide notice to downtown businesses and residents.  Such notices will be posted on this page.
