Mass Gatherings

Alpine City takes great pride in its incredible parks and open spaces. The City encourages public use and we hope all participants will help preserve and protect these wonderful amenities. Planned events are often held in Alpine City and may be considered a mass gathering. A mass gathering is defined as an event held on public or private property, with or without charge, profit or non-profit, and which creates significant impacts to the public. Activities including Fairs/Festivals, Races, Parades, and Concerts are considered mass gathering events. Additional criteria, such as substantial use of City Parks or Buildings, is used to determine if an event is a mass gathering. Please review the Mass Gathering Ordinance (PDF) or contact the City Offices at 801-756-6347 for more information.

If you are planning an event that may be considered a mass gathering, you will need to propose the event to the staff at least 40 days prior to the date of the proposed event. A staff meeting is held Monday morning at 9 am at City Hall. Staff meetings are held on a first-come first-serve basis so you do not need an appointment to attend. We will discuss your proposal and provide you with any direction needed. Your attendance at this meeting does not mean that your event is approved. The Mass Gathering Application (PDF) includes a list of all submittal requirements. The application, along with all other requirements, must be completed and submitted no less than 30 days prior to the start date of the event.
