Event Hosting

Trent Hills is well known for hosting festivals and special events that welcome both local residents and visitors to celebrate our community heritage and assets.

Special events add to the rich character of our community. 

Pursuant to Special Event Permit By-law 2024-063, a Special Event means a cultural, recreational, education or similar event of a short term nature that has either:

  • Free admission and is held on Municipal Property, and requires municipal resources or road closures; or
  • Paid admission and is held Outdoors on Private Property or Municipal Property

If you are considering hosting a special event in Trent Hills that will need a temporary road use/closure, use of municipal resources, and/or require in-kind support from the municipality review the Special Events Application  and plan to submit your application at least 90 days in advance of your free admission event and 120 for paid admission events.

Contact the AGCO for more information about obtaining a liquor license in a public place.

As a reminder, we require all our hosts to purchase event insurance to keep them protected during their time hosting a group in one of our facilities.

We’ve selected Duuo as our event insurance partner, which gives our event hosts access to a discounted rate on coverage.
