Street parties and fetes

Street parties and fetes to celebrate events are a traditional part of community life and are a great way for us to get to know our neighbours and meet members of our community. 

Wiltshire Council is keen to promote community activity where it can be accommodated conveniently and safely. With this in mind Wiltshire Council has adopted the following guidance and flow chart which is designed to make it straightforward for you to arrange and conduct these types of events.

Read the guide (found in the downloads section), if you would like to hold a street party or fete you can use the Street party flow chart to identify:

  • How to apply,
  • What forms you need to complete and how to let the council know of your intended plans.

The number one tip for holding a party is to plan early, think about what you want to achieve and get in touch with the council 'at least 4-6 weeks in advance'.

More helpful tips, advice and support for organising a successful event can be found on the Streets Alive website

Please submit your completed application form (available in the downloads section) for a street party or a small community event to the Corporate Events Co-ordinator, along with any supporting information*, by email or post using the contact details below.

*Please note that when submitting plans or drawings these should be at A4 size.
