Mayor's Office of Special Events

Special events represent millions of dollars in economic activity for the Louisville region. From large community festivals that spend millions of dollars with local companies and bring attendees that impact hotels, shopping, restaurants and other area attractions to the hundreds of community events that occupy nearly every spring, summer and fall weekend in our city; the city of Louisville is a key partner in the success of many of these festivals in the form of city services, promotional assistance, press conferences, the online events calendar and consultation.
