Special Event Applications

For a copy of the Special Event Applications for the City of St. Augustine Beach, please see below. In addition, please see the St. Johns County website for their Beach Rules and Regulations. City Code for Special Events can be found in Section 13.

There are two categories for the permit applications, please request the correct application or your permit may be delayed:

  • Minor Impact Events
    • Weddings of 15 to 99 guests and participants
    • Special events of 15 to 199 guests and participants
  • Significant Impact Events
    • Weddings of 100 or more guests and participants
    • Special events of 200 or more guests and participants
    • Any event involving a public street

Please be advised that weddings can only occur south of A Street or in Commercial Zones north of A Street (on the beach directly east of Pier Park, hotels, bed & breakfasts, or licensed beachfront vacation rental properties).


Permit fees are $100 and Significant events are required to submit an additional $300 bond.

If you are renting the St Johns County Pier Pavilion and/or Promenade you do not have to pay the application fee, only the bond. You can contact Danielle Fountain at St. Johns County Beach Services regarding rentals at 904-209-0752 or dfountain [at] sjcfl.us.


Please fill out the form as completely as possible, if necessary information is missing it may delay the approval process. We recommend a minimum of 30 days for Minor events and 60 days for Significant events to review and process the permit application.

Permits will not be processed until the application fee is received.
