City & Film Permits

Piedmont Park is Atlanta’s most visited public park, attracting more than 6 million people each year. The park hosts Atlanta’s biggest entertainment events and festivals: Peachtree Road Race, Atlanta Pride Festival, Music Midtown, Atlanta Jazz Festival and the Dogwood Festival.

If you are interested in hosting an event or vending anywhere on the grounds, with the exception of these four venues, you must apply to the City of Atlanta for a city permit.
