Please consult with the Administration Department at 630-469-5000 prior to submitting a special event permit application to discuss whether your event falls under this policy.
Generally, commercial or non-residential outdoor events that will take place on public or private property or which will take place in public right-of-ways (i.e. street, sidewalk, parking lot), or that will be held on public property where liquor is to be served fall under the scope of this policy. Generally, indoor private events (i.e. invitation only) are exempt from the application process, but are required to apply for all applicable liquor licenses.
