Oro Valley Events
Due to COVID-19 and existing state Executive Orders, the Town is not accepting Major Special Event Applications on public or private property. A Major Event is a special event that requires extra-duty law enforcement officers or other security services; and temporary traffic control. Major event is defined in Oro Valley Town Code Section 8-3-1, and typically involves the attraction of hundreds or even thousands of participants. The Town will reevaluate the acceptance of Major Special Event Applications in January 2021 and/or when state Executive Orders are modified or lifted for large gatherings.
The Town will consider accepting Minor Special Event Applications on public or private property. The application needs to describe what Social Distancing precautions are being taken to protect event participants and staff from contracting COVID-19, and where the number of attendees in proximity to one another without barriers are not substantially greater than those allowed under current state Executive Orders. Additionally the event organizer/ applicant will be required to enter into an indemnity agreement with the Town, which will be provided if the application and social distancing precautions are met. Some potentially acceptable Social Distancing precautions may include drive in, drive by, or drive thru concepts. A non-drive thru concept would be an art fair.
