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
