Special Event Policy

The Town of Truckee continuously works with many special event promoters, event sponsors, community members and organizations in assisting with public safety, traffic, and crowd control at special events and activities that promote the social and economic well being of Truckee.  The Town encourages events which promote tourism and foster an economic revitalization for the downtown area and the community as a whole.

An ordinance and policy have been adopted by Town Council to guide promoters in planning a successful and safe event.  Council also adopted a permit fee and a discounted rate that will be charged for police services used for events.  The intention of the reduced rate is to encourage events that will increase the tax revenue to the Town through transient occupancy and sales taxes.
