A tent permit is needed for tents over 120 square feet or for all tents used for cooking. Some common events that involve a tent are retail sales events, food preparation or sales, vendor display area, special events display, meetings, weddings or other gatherings.
A Temporary Use Permit may also be required for your event. When both permits are required, the higher of the two permit fees is charged.
Review the tent permit code information and complete the tent permit application and return to the Permit Application Center (PAC) with a site plan showing where the tent will be placed and a flame-resistant treatment certificate. An inspection by the Building Inspections Department and the Fire Department is required before the tent can be occupied.
For further information, contact any Customer Service Representative at the Permit Application Center (PAC) at 803-329-5590 or email the PAC.
