Events: Dance events on Sundays and public holidays - exemption permit

If you want to hold a dance event on Sundays or public holidays, you usually need an exemption permit.

Sundays and state-recognized holidays are days of general work rest that must not be disturbed. If you want to hold a dance event on a Sunday or a public holiday, you will need an exemption in many cases.

For dance events, there are various prohibitions in the holiday laws of the federal states, which may differ in content: There are restrictions on the time of the local church services, but also those that affect certain Sundays and holidays (such as Good Friday) as a whole. In addition, individual working days (such as Maundy Thursday and Holy Saturday) are also affected by the ban. In order to be able to carry out dance events nevertheless, an exemption permit is required in such cases.

In Schleswig-Holstein, dance events are only prohibited on silent holidays (Good Friday, Volkstrauertag, Totensonntag).

Please clarify the necessary documents with the responsible authority.
