The City of Green Bay defines a Special Event as one of the following displays which interferes with the normal flow or regulation of traffic upon the streets, sidewalks, and/or rights-of-way:
Essentially, a Special Event takes place on public property including parks, streets, alleys, sidewalks, terraces, boardwalks, piers, landings, bodies of water, and the like. Special Events are open to the public. A Special Event can be as small as 200 people or as many as 50,000. Special Event Organizers may charge attendees or create an experience that is free. Events held on private property are not Special Events for the purposes of the City of Green Bay’s policies.
