Request Process

The State Preservation Board approves and schedules all Capitol events held in the public areas of the Capitol, Capitol Extension and on the Capitol Grounds. Public events must serve a public purpose by promoting the public health, education, safety, morals and general welfare of all of the state's residents.

  • Completed requests must include a Sponsorship Form from a state official sponsor. State official sponsors include the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, a Texas Senator, or a member of the Texas House of Representatives.
