The Taguig City government is implementing an ordinance requiring public activity organizers to apply for a Special Events Permit at least five days before the event.

Special events are planned activities on public property that may impact city services, resources, neighborhoods, or businesses.

The ordinance aims to ensure safety, secure vehicular and pedestrian traffic, improve environmental sustainability, and reduce conflict between events.

General and specific requirements may apply differently depending on the event’s nature.

Special events include but are not limited to:

Applications must be filed with supporting documents at least five working days before the event, with special services required 15 working days earlier.
