The City of Puyallup has historically supported a limited number of longstanding events which have become community traditions. Sponsorships are extended in the form of ‘in-kind’ donations for City services such as: police services, traffic direction, crew labor costs for street closures, traffic control device rental, and facility use.
To be considered for a sponsorship, event organizers must provide the items below.
All necessary information, including (as applicable): site plan, traffic control plan and/or race route, and an event stormwater pollution prevention plan;
A statement signed by the event organizer that proof of required insurance and required endorsement will be submitted to the City at least 30 days prior to the event; and
A letter outlining the event sponsorship request (including all City services sought such as police or traffic services, use of public facility and/or park, etc.) and describing how the event meets one or more of the following criteria:
Generates cultural or educational enrichment, or celebrates the City’s history and heritage
Offers a free public event with widespread appeal to different audiences, interest groups and age ranges
Generates significant economic benefit and/or exposure for businesses
Provides a type of event or service that is not already supplied by the City
Applications without the above-mentioned elements will not be considered. Events approved for sponsorship may be required to meet specified criteria/conditions related to impacts on safety, parking, traffic, noise, or other factors.
Applications, all required materials and payment must be received by the City Clerk’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, August 29, 2022.
