To host a Special Event in Jersey City, event organizers are required to submit a Special Event Application to the Office of Cultural Affairs for approval & signature by 15 City Departments & Agencies, and must be submitted 60 days prior to the proposed event date.

The Office of Cultural Affairs acts as a liaison between the event organizers and the City, and manages the collection of the required signatures. This year we have moved the Special Event application process to online through the Docusign platform.

If you wish to host a Special Event, please email Anne McTernan at or call (201) 547-6921 to request a link to Docusign.
