Single event permits are available for a group that wants to sell liquor, wine, beer or heavy beer (over 3.2%) at a temporary event. These are available to a bona fide partnership, corporation, limited liability company, church, political organization, or incorporated association or to a recognized subordinate lodge, chapter or other local unit thereof that is conducting a civic or community enterprise or convention. The organization must have been in existence as a bona fide organization for at least one year prior to the date of application.
The permit allows for cash bars and the sale of alcoholic beverages to the general public, or to the organization's own invited guests for the duration of the event.
Permits are issued by the DABC Director contingent on review of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission. To ensure adequate processing and approval, complete applications should be submitted 30 days prior to the event. Applications submitted outside of these guidelines risk non-issuance of a permit. Additionally, Due to statutory restrictions, applications received less than 7 business days prior to the event will not be considered. (When counting days, realize that there must be seven business days between the day the application is received and the date of the event).
A complete application includes local consent by a city, town, or county in which the event is held and requires you to get the written consent of the local jurisdiction where the event will be held. Please note that each local jurisdiction has their own procedures for issuing local consent. Please work with your locality to ensure that local consent is sent in time for DABC processing.
