City-Wide Special Events

Arts & CultureSpecial Events is responsible for all City-wide groundbreakings, ribbon cuttings, site dedications, public recognition events and others. They serve as the lead event coordinator and ensure that everything required for the event is in place.

Special events enhance the Riverside lifestyle and provide benefits to the citizens through the creation of unique venues for entertainment that are not normally provided as part of governmental services. Non-profit tax exempt organizations which benefit the community are central to the quality of life in Riverside and they often develop special events that provide services to the residents of the City of Riverside.

Conducting a Special Event in Riverside
