COVID-19 and Old Town Square Events

The health and wellness of our team and community at large is a priority of the Fort Collins Downtown Development Authority.  To support this effort, the DDA is adhering to the directives issued by State and County public health officials, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention relative to the COVID-19 (coronavirus). On March 16, 2020, Larimer County Public Health Director, Tom Gonzales, issued a public health order requiring the cancellation or postponement of events with more than 250 attendees and the closure of senior community centers in Larimer County. Due to this recent recommendation, the DDA will not be accepting new applications for event permits in Old Town Square proposing to be held before April 30, 2020 with crowds anticipated to be larger than 250 persons.  This is subject to change pursuant to the advisement of public health officials. Further questions regarding event/vendor permits for Old Town Square, please contact Bonnie Ward, (970) 484-2020, bjward@fcgov.com
