Report an event

Are you organising an event? In many cases you will need a permit. If you want to organise an event which has a minor impact on the public space, such as a neighbourhood party on a square, in a park or on the street, it is enough to report it.

    Is a report enough or do you need a permit?

    • For visitor numbers between 250 and 25,000, you need a permit for a small event.
    • Are you expecting more than 25,000 visitors? Then you need a permit for a big event.
    • If you are organising a market or street fair with the intention of selling goods or merchandise, apply for a private market permit.
    • Are you placing only 1 or more objects such as a bouncy castle or a party tent for your own use or for shoppers or passers-by? Then this is not an event. Look at Permit to use a public road.
    • Are you unsure? Fill in the Evenementenwijzer and see right away what you need for your event.
