After you have a better understanding of what you may need to obtain for your event, you then can fill out the City of New London Special Events Permit Application.  We've created this to be a "one stop shop" for most of the information you need to provide us for the city permits needed for your event.  Please keep in mind that this application is only for the permits that the City of New London requires.  Their may be other permits you need to obtain from Outagamie or Waupaca County to legally hold your event.  Click here or on the picture to the right to download your copy of the application.Special Events App Cover
