Festival Planning

Permit Process

The process of obtaining all the necessary permits for a festival may take more than 45 days, so begin planning as early as possible.

The first step in planning a festival or major event in Walton County is to contact the Walton County Planning Department at (850) 267-1955.

When you contact the Planning Department, plan to:

  • Discuss the County's Outdoor Event Application - you will need to complete and submit this at least 45 days in advance of the event
  • Review the Outdoors Events Ordinance
