Signs and Banners for Temporary Special Events

Temporary Special Event organizers may complete a Sign on the Green Application or a Banner Application to advertise their special event in Hudson. Signs will be placed on the corner of the Gazebo Green. Space can be reserved to hang banners from the light poles along State Route 303 and Main Street or in the First & Main area.

Banner and Sign Applications will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. Applications must be submitted no later than 30 days prior to requested install date. Please review the Sign and Banner regulations below before submitting an application.

NOTE: These sign and banner applications are for Temporary Special Events only. If you would like to place a sign at your home or business (garage sale signs, sale signs, etc.), the temporary sign must be registered with the Community Development Department.
