Special events are held on a regular basis in the City of Rock Hill and are sponsored by a variety of City departments and community groups. In order to ensure the health and safety of all citizens, the City of Rock Hill has an established policy for requesting approval of a special event held on public property.
Groups must complete an application that includes specific information about the event, including date, time, place, number of participants, etc. Once the application is returned, the Special Event Committee, comprised of representatives from each department, will review the request and make a recommendation for approval or denial. If approved, a Memorandum of Understanding will be drafted detailing the responsibilities of all parties involved and will serve as the special event permit.
With any special event, public safety and risk management are top priorities for the City to consider. The Special Event Committee defers to the Police, Fire and Risk Management Departments and to the City Manager for a final determination in the approval of an event.
For a complete list of City-sponsored events, check the City Calendar for event descriptions, dates, times and contact information.
