Hosting a special event
The City of Mitchell hosts many events and activities throughout the year. Events that are open to the general public, and take place within the public right-of-way; require closure of streets or parking lots, sound amplification, or are located within a park are coordinated through the special event application & permit process. Typically, these events require permits, licenses and approvals from several City departments, depending on the size and nature of the special event.
