Office of Special Events, Film & Tourism

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: Permit applications for parks, squares, runs, parades or any other event (except film) in the public right-of-way must be received no later than 60 days from the date of the event. Application submittal DOES NOT indicate approval.

The Office of Special Events, Film & Tourism was created to streamline services offered by the City of Savannah for these industries. This is accomplished by having a one-stop shop for individuals and organizations to plan their events and gain necessary permitting.  

Primary Services include:

  • Permitting for film and media projects for students and professional filmmakers;
  • Coordinating and permitting large-scale events;
  • Permitting block parties and festivals;
  • Permitting food trucks, coordinating food truck lotteries, and hosting food truck rodeos;
  • Permitting and managing events in parks and squares;
  • Managing tourism-related improvements and complaints.

The Office is located in Daffin Park at One Waring Drive. Please contact the Office at (912) 351-3837 for information about services.
