Community Events Division







       The Community Events Division processes all applications for area organizations that would like to host an event in the city and acts as the city contact for any community event. The division also processes all block party applications, oversees the Street Pole Banner Program, showmobile rentals, and coordinates the Summer Concert Series in the parks, the Akron Arts Expo weekend, and the Welcome Santa Holiday Parade.


Community Event Applications
Interested in having an event in the City? Contact us.

A community event is any event that is open to the public and which uses property of the City of Akron. An application must be processed for each community event and written approval must be received from the City of Akron before a public announcement of the event can be made. Use of the showmobile, city equipment and personnel is limited to events approved by the City. City fees may be waived in whole or in part for city-sponsored or co-sponsored events.

The 2018 application is now available - located to your right under additional resources.
