If you or your business wish to host a special event, or film, on public property, the Town of Kure Beach requires a Special Event permit. Please complete the permit application, along with a detailed site plan, and submit to the Recreation Department. Staff will review your application request and follow up with additional questions, needs, and/or fees required. Certain requests, such as road closures, require Town Council approval and need additional time to process. For this reason, event applications should be submitted at least 60 days prior to the proposed event date. Additionally, the Town requires minimum liability coverage of $1 million dollars. You will need to provide proof of insurance, with the Town listed as additionally insured, which will need to be submitted prior to permit approval.
