Plan an Event

Thank you for your interest in planning a public event in the Town of Amherstburg.

Public Events have a very positive impact on the municipality and the Town thanks you for contributing to the spirit of the community. The Town of Amherstburg is proactive in supporting new Public Events throughout the Town, as well as working with existing event organizers to further the success of their activities.

The Public Events Committee is excited to help support and guide you through the planning process of your Public Event and as a result, the Public Events Manual has been developed to allow the Town and event organizers to work together in presenting public events that will be an exciting and positive addition to the community's quality of life.

The Public Events Committee (PEC) is a committee of department representatives that provides you with support through direct consultation.  The Public Event Manual highlights the areas of responsibility and provides you with contact information for each representative. Additionally, there are several forms that will assist you in the approval process of your event.  Download the Public Event Forms and fill them out.  These forms along with your $250 deposit is to be submitted for consideration at a meeting of the Public Events Committee.

If you have any questions regarding the process or public events in general, please email Licensing Officer, Helen Sweet.


We wish you the very best as you plan and prepare for your Public Event!
