What Events Must Follow This Process?

Throughout the year, the City of Langley is home to several special events requiring a great deal of planning, communication, and cooperation.

The City of Langley intends to be proactive in attracting new special events to our community, as well as working with the existing event organizers to further the success of their events. The management of special events on City of Langley property requires the coordinated efforts of City staff to ensure the event operates safely and adheres to applicable by-laws, policies, and procedures.

The primary characteristics of Special Events is that they: are open to the public, are a celebration or display of a specific theme, take place annually or less frequently, or have a definite opening and closing time. Some examples of special events that must follow this process are community festivals, walk-a-thons, car shows, fundraisers, and parades.

Weddings, birthday parties, anniversary parties and other functions not open to the public do not constitute a special event that needs to follow this process. Any event held on property that is not City of Langley property does not need to follow this process.
