Special Events

The Town of Kure Beach offers several special events each year, as well as hosts special events of outside entities on Town property. To sign up to receive notifications of all of our events, programs, and news items, please click here


The Town requires that all persons and businesses wishing to have a special event, including filming, on public property obtain a permit. Please submit a completed permit application, including detailed site plans, to the Town's Recreation Department. The Recreation Department will reach out upon reviewing the application to gain a complete understanding of the permit request. Depending upon the impact to public property, permit approval may be required from Town Council at a public meeting. For this reason, event/film permit applications involving the closure/disruption of any public amenity or requesting the use of off-duty Police Officers should be submitted with sufficient time for such review. The Town requires comprehensive general liability coverage of $1 million dollars, which will need to be provided to the Town prior to permit approval. You will be notified of any costs pertaining to your request, based off the Town's Fee Schedule. You may be required to meet with representatives of the Town to discuss your request and the associated fees.
