Register Events

Are you hosting an event in the Town of Boone limits? Whether it's a family reunion or a party for friends, we know that sometimes it's hard to regulate noise levels. Here in the Town of Boone, we want you to have fun while also staying within the Town's ordinances, and above all else we want you to stay safe. That's why the Boone Police Department has an Online Event Registration Form.

Registration of your event will result in a courtesy phone call being made to the primary or secondary contact person if a complaint is received alleging a noise violation. If the responsible parties believe they can resolve the situation, police officers will not respond. Officers will respond if the responsible party requests assistance. If a second complaint is received alleging a noise violation, officers will respond. This procedure only applies to noise violations and does not relieve the responsible party/parties from the requirements of the Town of Boone Noise Ordinance and applies to residential locations within the Town of Boone.
