Special events, such as runs, walks, marches, parades, bicycle races or processions (excluding funeral processions) require a permit, or are considered unlawful. Organizations interested in facilitating a special event should refer to Chapter 12.15 of the Santa Clara Municipal Code for guidelines, submit an Parade Permit Request and, if the event will include amplified sound, obtain a separate Permit Request for Outdoor Amplified Music.  

Applications should be returned to the following address:

City of Santa Clara
Permits Center
1500 Warburton Avenue
Santa Clara, Ca 95050

The appropriate City Department(s) will review the application and support materials. If the event meets the City's criteria and doesn't conflict with other event(s) a permit may be issued to the entity representing the event.
