Holding a Special Event in Madison

Posted Friday, March 5th, 2021 at 2:48 pm

On March 2, 2021 Public Health Madison & Dane County (PHMDC) issued Public Health Order #14, which is in effect on March 10, 2021 and lasts for 28 days. Under PHMDC order #14, outdoor public gatherings are limited to 500 or fewer people abiding by the six feet physical distancing requirements. Face coverings are required for any outdoor gathering of more than 50 people.

If an event meets the criteria to occur under this order or any future orders, organizers must submit detailed plans that show how they will meet PHMDC requirements for physical distancing and cleaning policies, and a plan for monitoring attendance at the event. Please contact us at MadisonEvents@cityofmadison.com for additional information.

If this order or any future PHMDC order restricting or prohibiting the size or nature of outdoor events are in place on the date(s) of an event, they supersede and may invalidate any approved street use or park event permits.
