Special Events

Star Spangled Parade

The Lake Run, the Festival of the Arts, the Star Spangled Parade and 4th of July road closures, Homecoming Parades, Farmer’s Market, Hop at the Hunt, Summer Concert Series, Lighting of the Holiday Tree and the world famous Pet Parade – these are just a few of the many special events the City hosts throughout the year and the Lake Oswego Police Department responds to.  A Special Event Permit is required anytime you want to impact a roadway, public right-of-way or want the Police Department’s assistance. While heavily involved in road closures, the Department also wants to have a presence where large groups may gather for safety and security reasons.  Special Event Permits can be obtained through the Lake Oswego Parks and Recreation Department here
