Special Event Permit Process
The City of Vista hosts many special events including the Chamber's Strawberry Festival and Holiday Parade; classic car shows; street fairs and other events. The events must follow certain criteria that are specific to what the event entails. In many cases, a Special Event Permit is required, typically if street closure(s) or other traffic control measures on any public street, sidewalk or alley are needed.
