Welcome, and thank you for using the Outdoor Special Event (OSE) Guide Quick Reference! This reference tool is designed to save time by assisting you with completing our manual pdf/doc versions of the application and other forms that comprise a full application submittal. The following questions are designed to tailor the information in the OSE Guide to your specific needs as an event organizer. You may go back and modify your answers at any point during the survey process by using the navigation buttons within the survey; please do not use the navigation buttons on your browser. 

Before you begin, please have ready the PDF version of our Outdoor Special Events Permit Application and the Outdoor Special Events Guide. Both documents can be downloaded from the City of Asheville webpage  Please note this tool is specific to individuals who elect to use the manual, PDF/DOC versions of the City's event applications and forms, instead of the newer online application system.
