The City of Altoona desires to facilitate neighborhood activities and public events, as they help to develop a sense of community. Additionally, public events stimulate the local economy, which helps Altoona continue to thrive.
Event request applications are reviewed by Public Works Director, Community Development Department, Police Chief and Fire Chief. Depending on the size and the location of the event you may be asked to meet with city staff to work through event locations and staging. All applications will be approved or denied by the Altoona City Council.
Please note: Sometimes an insurance certificate naming the City as an additional insured in the amount of $1,000,000 or more will be required depending on the size and location of the event.
