Special Permits Fees
Kenton County Parks and Recreation has introduced a plan to assist organizers of special events. Under this plan, a special event is defined as a non-profit event that requires additional space for tents or other apparatus, that requires use of large areas of the park and impacting the normal use of the park (such as car shows, festivals, large corporate functions, show, demonstration, exhibition, pageant, large outdoor gathering, *race/walk, etc.), or that requires advance planning. Booking one of Kenton County’s parks for a special event includes the exclusive use of one shelter house.
Reserving a date for a special event requires:
- Payment of a non-refundable permit fee
- Review the Special Event/Advanced Booking Permit Policy (PDF)
- Completed Special Event Request Application
