Temporary events in Utah need a permit to sell alcohol and these are for events that are public. Private parties don't need to have a permit, but if they advertise that party on social media, it will be construed as public. Also if tickets are sold to a private party, then it's not considered private anymore. People should also note that they need to get the permit 30 days before the event, so those who procrastinate might not want to delay on doing that.
Single Event Permits: Single event permits are available from the Utah Department ofAlcoholic Beverage Services for groups that want to sell liquor, wine, flavored malt beverages, beer, and heavy beer at temporary events. These are available to a bona fide partnerships, corporations, limited liability companies, political or religious organizations, or incorporated associations (including recognized subordinate lodges, chapters or other local units) that have been in existence for at least one year. The organization must be conducting a civic or community enterprise or convention. The permit allows for the sale of alcoholic beverages to the general public, or to the organization's own invited guests for the duration of the event. The permit allows for hosted bars or cash bars and the sale of alcohol for fundraising purposes. Permits are approved by the Director of DABS and applications must be submitted 30 days in advance of the event. Local licensing is also required.
