Events in Downtown Roanoke

Effective January 1, 2018, Downtown Roanoke, Inc. is no longer the point of contact for event permitting or park/plaza reservations for events taking place in Downtown Roanoke.  As of January 1, The City of Roanoke is handling the scheduling, permitting, and rental process for all events.

 

Assemblies of more than FIVE people require a City of Roanoke Assembly Permit. Contact Dwayne Nelms with the City of Roanoke at dwayne.nelms@roanokeva.gov or via telephone at (540) 853-5482.
