Liquor licences for public special events

Public events include any event open to the public, such as beer gardens, festivals, theatre productions, or food and wine fairs.  For these events, you need a public special event licence (SEL).

Public SEL can be either:

To apply, download the appropriate application (community, commercial, or auction) and return the application to AGLC Liquor/Cannabis Licensing.

For private special events, please refer to Liquor licences for private special events.

For policies and guidelines on holding an event with a liquor licence, refer to:

ProServe

All public community SEL, the licencee and designate(s), and a minimum of 25% of the bartenders/servers must be ProServe certified and be onsite for the duration of the event. 

For commercial SEL, everyone involved in the sale and service of liquor, including security, must have ProServe certification.
