If you want to organize your event in a public area, for example a park, square, or market place, you need a land use permit from the city's property management unit. Sports venues, including Tampere stadium, are operated by city sports services. Street use permits are granted by the City of Tampere’s Planning Services department. Open air stages in the city's parks are operated by the city cultural services.
If you need help finding a venue, please contact Tampere Event Services.
The permits needed depend on the event in question; usually you'll need at least a permission to use the event venue, a notice of public event to the police, safety and emergency plans, and a waste management plan. Separate licences, permits or plans are needed if you are going to for example play music, or serve food or alcohol.
More information on licences, permits and plans in the link below.
