Weddings and Other Functions

No event permit is required for private functions such as weddings; however, other permits may be required depending on whether alcohol will be served, the use of a tent or marquee, or if noise will occur past 11:00 p.m.

Should you wish to have your wedding at a Township park or facility, please visit our Community Facilities page or contact vhafner@get.on.ca or 519-856-9596 ext. 113.

Will you be serving alcohol?

A special occasion permit is required for the sale and service of beverage alcohol at special occasions such as weddings, charity fundraisers, receptions, etc. These permits are issued through the LCBO on behalf of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. You may be required to notify the Township about your special occasion permit. Notifications can be sent to jhyde@get.on.ca or mailed to the Township Office at PO Box 700, Rockwood, ON N0B 2K0. Should you require an acknowledgment letter from the Township, please advise.

Will you be using a tent or marquee?

Please be advised that if you are using a tent or a marquee that is greater than 640 square feet in area, you are required to apply for a temporary Building Permit from our Building Department. Please contact Building Department at Ext. 117 or dsharina@get.on.ca, if you require such a permit. The Building Department will require a sketch outlining the location of all tents and/or marquees being used on the property for your event.
 

Will you be playing music past 11:00 p.m.?

If you are planning to play music at your event past 11:00 p.m., you will be required to complete a Noise By-law Exemption application, which must be approved by Council. Visit the Township's By-law Page for more information on Noise By-law.
