Requesting an event

Activities may not submit more than one year in advance of their event date request (unless they are government)—you must hit the submit button after midnight when submitting as far in advance as possible. Government activities receive first priority for space use—Government activities are defined as by and for the conduct of government business. Once your application is approved, your event title, event start time and sponsor will appear on an automatically generated public calendar. Make sure these are correct when you fill out the application - Please do not advertise your activity until you are issued a permit. Buses may not park on the Capitol Campus. Call the campus event line if you have questions (360) 902-8881

* Type of Activity: 

Fees are required for services provided by the Department of Enterprise Services for all activity types. Please view our fee schedule page. The event coordinator will contact you regarding the application processing fee and the method of payment.

State government activities have first priority for the use of the Capitol buildings and grounds.  If no conflict with state government activities exists, we will process permit applications for other uses on a first-come, first-served basis.

Only complete applications will be accepted. Submitting an application does not mean your activity is approved.
