GUEST,MTed US Law Query: Planning Permission for Festivals? (19) RE: US Law Query: Planning Permission for Festivals? 29 Jun 05

It depends entirely where you are--inside the limits of incorporated cities, you are basically a tasty snack for all the bureaucrats to eat alive with regulations, the farther away to get, the more anything goes--Gargoyle is pretty much right about his East to West thing, except for California and Oregon, which, depending on where you are, can be extremely difficult.

The thing is, if you want to put a festival on, the best thing to do is to shop around for a town or small city that doesn't have much going on, and would like to have something going on--there are places that would welcome it, and do a lot to help make it work--

A farmer's pasture is a stupid place to have a festival, because it has no facilities of any kind--no parking, no water, no toilets, no lights, no electricity, no stage, no picnic tables--well, you can sort of figure out why stuff tends to happen in parks, on private campgrounds, or in actual music/performing arts facilities.

Summer is here, and there are festivals enough to choke a horse--most have slapped together entertainement, consisting of six bad local bands and a top 40 Group from the sixties with only one of the original members, but there are some good things too, and there are folks around who'd be open to setting up a good thing, if you know where to look for them, and know how to set up such a thing--
