City of Glendale, Arizona - Banner Display Program

Eligibility Requirements and Selection Process

The Banner Program is intended to provide pride in the community, add color and excitement to the city’s streetscape, promote community activities, special events, and other cultural or sporting activities, as well as promote programs important to the city’s image, economic interest and organizations serving the community.

Eligible banners are those that match the above stated philosophy of the Banner Program. Banners may not advertise or promote commercial products or services,
or religious, political or social viewpoints. Banners may not promote or advertise gambling. Applicant or sponsor’s name or slogan may occupy no more than the
lower 15% of the banner. There must be a direct connection between the banner design and the event.


Light pole banners are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Banner
applications must be submitted at least 45 days before the requested install date. Banner applications will not be accepted more than one year before the requested display date.

the application with a check payable to: City of Glendale. See “Street Banner Program Application Form.”

Once the application is received, the City’s Banner Review Committee will review

banner reflects the goals of the program. Questions concerning the program or
a specific application should be directed to Visit Glendale at
