Special Events Planning back

Serve Alcohol

If you plan on serving liquor or beer as a part of your event, You must fill out a ‘City of Lansing Application for City Approval of Beer/Wine sales in City Parks’. In addition, you need apply for a Michigan Liquor Control Commission Application for special License for Sale of Beer and Wine. A copy of this license will be given to the City.
You must also supply the City a site map indicating where the alcohol sales will take place and proof that you have acquired the necessary insurance.
If the sales are on a street (truck lines), the State of Michigan requires proof that the sale has been approved by the City – copy of the approved Lansing Application for City Approval of Beer/Wine Sale.
