Planning to hold and an event in the Alpine Shire?
Permit applications are available for events that are planned and managed in line with the COVIDSafe recommendations and sit within the framework of Council's Event Strategy and Events Strategy Action Plan.
We encourage you to discuss your proposed event with the Events Team at Alpine Shire Council.
You will likely need an event permit if any of the following apply:
- your event is held on land managed by Council
- your event require changes to normal traffic conditions
- your event has the potential to impact public amenity
Please contact the Alpine Shire if you wish to conduct a demonstration, rally or protest or other form of public assembly.

Timeframes for an event permit vary depending on the complexity of each event. Applications should be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the proposed event date for low impact events, and at least 3- 6 months for medium to high impact events.
