Party Tents and Permits: Two Key Elements of Every Neighborhood Block Party

Posted by CanopiesAnd Tarps on Jun 5th 2014

Block parties are a great way to bring everyone together and foster a feeling of community. If you hope to host one in the weeks ahead, there are several tasks that must be taken care of sooner rather than later. And the list starts with permits andparty tents.

Most cities, towns and municipalities require block party planners to secure at least one permit prior to an events kickoff. Take the City of Redondo Beach as an example. If you want to hold a block party there, you will likely need the following documents:

  • Indemnification and Hold Harmless Agreement
  • Certificate of Insurance(For Alcohol Events)
  • Neighborhood Approval Petition
  • Alcohol Beverage Control License
  • Amplified Sound Permit
  • BBQ Rental Agreement
  • Block Party Permit

Party tents are an essential part of block parties too. They help bring excitement to the event as well as provide shelter for event attendees and organizers. Oftentimes, block party organizers will need to obtain tent permits too. In Redondo Beach,tent permitsare generally classified as a fire department related affair. So its vital that you select a party tent that meets or exceeds city, county and state fire regulations.

At Canopies and Tarps, we have party tents that are outfitted withfire retardant tops. The party tents tops meet California Title 19, Canvas Products Association and National Fire Protection Association standards, which is a good thing. Many cities in California require that any party tents used at outdoor, public events meet or exceed those standards. So its infinitely better to find out which certifications your local government requires prior to placing a party tent order
