I have provided the DWE with a floor plan of my premises in order to create an 8 1/2″ x 11″ diagram showing exits and where liquor will be served and consumed. The Durango Wine Experience will provide Insurance and Security for this event. I agree to post the City Notice Poster conspicuously on my premises for the mandatory ten-day period. I will provide some form of “food snacks” for the event and they shall be available during all hours of service of malt, spirituous or vinous liquors.
NON-PROFIT BENEFICIARY The Durango Wine Experience is a Colorado not-for-profit organization. For the last seven years, all net proceeds have gone to a local Durango non-profit. We are pleased to announce that our 2008-2014 beneficiary be the United Way of Southwest Colorado!

When is a Special Event Permit NOT required, even though alcohol beverages are going to be sold or served? Section 12-48-108, C.R.S. contains an exemption for non-profit organizations holding fundraising events at permanently licensed retail premises, with public access, are not required to obtain a Special Events Permit. In this case, authorized alcohol beverage suppliers must invoice all alcohol beverages to the retail licensee, not the non-profit organization. A Club licensee which only allows access to its members and guests, and an Arts licensee, which only sells or serves alcohol beverages during artistic or cultural performances, are acquired to obtain a Special Events Permit at the Club or Arts licensed premises when they hold events that allow public access. (See Section 12-48-103(2) C.R.S.)
