    Bazaar, Raffle, & Bingo Applications

    In accordance with Public Act No. 17-231 the State of Connecticut as of January 1, 2018, has revised the law for processing applications with municipalities for: Bazaars, Raffles, Bingo, and reporting statements. This new Act transfers the permitting and reporting responsibility of bazaars, bingos, and raffles from the State of Connecticut to municipalities.

    You can locate all the necessary applications/forms/instructions used by this municipality for the permitting process under “Applications & Forms”.

    Please note, the Department of Consumer Protection will retain the responsibility of permitting and enforcement of all equipment, ticket dealers, manufacturers and distributors related to sealed tickets, bingos, bazaars and raffles. The State of Connecticut DCP will continue processing permit applications for sealed ticket gaming, as this area was not part of the law change.

    The following procedural changes for bazaars, bingos, and raffle applications have been implemented per the new Public Act:

    • All applications will be accepted at the Suffield Police Department, and no longer accepted at the Department of Consumer Protection [DCP].
    • The Suffield Police Department will collect fees applicable to each application when submitted to this Department.
    • Permit applications and fees may be hand delivered or mailed to the municipality located at:
      Suffield Police Department
