Additional Permits and Resources
Special Event Questionnaire
The Special Event Questionnaire can help you better understand the needs of your event and what additional applications may be required. This questionnaire is intended to be used as a guide to help the applicant and the City of Manvel identify the type of event being planned and what additional resources the applicant may need to submit with their Special Event Permit Application.
When filling out the Special Event Questionnaire, review each category carefully and check the boxes YES or NO if they apply to your event. Applicants may complete this checklist and include it with their Special Event Permit Application submission.
Additional Permit Applications
In the event of Type A and B (defined on our Types of Special Events page), some additional permit applications, forms, and inspections may be required.
Temporary Booth, Membrane Structures and Tents Permit Application
If you plan on bringing or providing temporary structures such as tents or canopies at your event, you will need to fill out a Temporary Booth, Membrane Structures and Tents Permit Application. If tents exceed 200 sq/ft. (greater than 14’x14’), the Fire Marshal may reach out to schedule an inspection of the tent or structure. If your event will feature vendors or other organizations that intend to use their own temporary structures, they will be responsible for filling out a Temporary Booth, Membrane Structures and Tents Permit Application for their booth.
Tents exceeding 200 sq/ft. will also need to be flame retardant and have a 2A10BC fire extinguisher (more information on fire extinguishers can be found in Fire Protection Reference Information for Mobile Food Units and Special Events).
Mobile Food Units must currently be registered with the City of Manvel. If they are not registered, they will need to register with a Mobile Food Unit Permit Packet and submit to an inspection before the date of the event.
NOTE: Special Event applicants CANNOT submit applications on behalf of a Mobile Food Unit that they do not own. Applications for the respective permits have been provided for reference or to share with desired vendors.
Food Service Health Permit Application
Temporary Food Establishments (Vendor Booths) must submit a Temporary Health Permit Application prior to the date of the event.
NOTE: Special Event applicants CANNOT submit permit applications on behalf of Temporary Food Establishments (Vendor Booths) that they do not own. Applications for the respective permits have been provided for reference or to share with desired vendors.
If alcohol is SOLD (by you or your organization), you will need to provide a copy of your or your organization’s TABC permit.
Sign Application Permit
If signs will be used in conjunction with your event, either on-site the day of your event or prior to the event as promotional/advertising materials, you will need to fill out a Sign Application Permit.
