The City of Richmond wants to make it easier for you to plan and host your event. Bringing the community together to celebrate, observe, honour or simply have fun contributes to our vision “to be the most appealing, livable and well-managed community in Canada.

The Application Process 

The Event Approvals Application system allows REACT (The Richmond Event Approval Coordination Team) to review your application. REACT reviews event applications that require multi-departmental and multi-jurisdictional approvals.

The purpose of the team is to review event applications, initiate event approvals by various departments and agencies, ensure coordination of City services, and provide a one-stop approval process for Event Organizers. This web application enables you to submit your application forms and the participants to coordinate the review and approvals process all online.

For assistance, you will want to refer to the section on the Application Process in the Event Application Guide on the City of Richmond’s website. The event application allows you to complete a form and save your work as you proceed through the steps and determine what approvals and permits you require. You can also monitor approval status of your application.

Please note we do not accept applications prior to one year before the start date of the event.
