Special Events

The City of Forney strives to work with residents, businesses, area organizations, schools, religious institutions, and other entities in the provision of special events that are well-coordinated, safe and enjoyable.


The city has established a Special Event Review Team (SERT) consisting of representatives of the city's Community Development, Parks and Recreation, Public Works, Fire, Police and other city departments.

SERT is responsible for accepting applications, reviewing proposals, and working with applicants to ensure that the process is as efficient as possible and the events are in keeping with city guidelines and policies. SERT and the city are committed to achieving a process that is responsive to the applicant, provides accurate and clear information, and encourages community events that are safe, enjoyable and well-coordinated.
