City of Monterey Events

The City of Monterey hosts numerous special events throughout the year to residents and visitors alike. We recognizes the social and economic benefits that may result from these various special events and how our beautiful city can provide unparalleled backdrops that other cities cannot offer. Special events can also provide opportunities for cultural enrichment, promote economic vitality, enhance the quality of life for our residents, and also reinforce community identity. 

Each event is unique in its own way and can require different permits or approvals. The first step in holding your event in Monterey is to fill out the Event Proposal on the City of Monterey's website here. If you have any questions, please contact Trevor Page the Special Events Coordinator for the City of Monterey.
