COVID-19 continues to impact the health and well-being of the community in many ways. It has been proven that the risk involved with large groups of people assembling for prolonged periods of time can lead to the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. After careful consideration, the City of Palm Beach Gardens has determined that in order to combat the spread of the virus, the most prudent measure is to no longer host higher risk special events. Therefore, City special events will not be held until further notice. Additionally, the City will not approve permit requests to utilize public property for special events. This determination will be reviewed again in December.
