Indoor filming locations (for both soundstages and on-location destinations) will remain at an allowable capacity limit of up to 50% of the building's capacity as outlined in the Open Texas Checklist for Media Production.

Outdoor gathering restrictions in excess of 10 people are still prohibited unless approved by the mayor of a city in which the gathering is held, or the county judge in the case of an unincorporated area, as outlined in the Governor's Proclamation dated July 2, 2020.

Local Permits & FAQs

The Special Event Application and permit fee are due at least 60 days before the event date.

After you submit the application, all internal city departments will review the application and respond to the Special Event Coordinator. At that time a review committee meeting date will be set between the departments involved and the permit applicant; this meeting date is 30-45 days prior to the event.

Applications submitted before 60 days in advance of the event can be reviewed sooner than 30-45 days before the event if city staff is given enough lead time to review the application.

We will do our best to accommodate applicants in the timeline of when applications are received and when the event is to take place.
