Planning an Event

Campustown Action Assocation - Making Campustown Shine!


Planning Your Own Event?

We think events are fun. But they’re also a lot of work. If you are planning to hold an event within the boundaries of the Campustown Service Center (CSC), there are some things you should consider.

  • Any organized event that occurs (even partially) on City property (streets, sidewalks, parking lots, parks, etc.) may require approval from the City's Special Event Committee.
  • Many special events also require approval by the Ames City Council; therefore, it is encouraged to start planning and seeking permission well in advance.
  • A letter from the Campustown Action Association may be required before your event is approved by the City.

We’ve thrown our share of events in the district and would be happy to help you work though the planning process. Contact us to get started.

We also recommend you visit the special events page on the City of Ames website. They offer some great resources and contact information. This is also where you will find the special event application. Learn More
