Advertising signs, billboards or banners announcing a festival or an event may not be erected on public land without a permit issued by the National Roads Administration (Administration des ponts et chaussées) and the Ministry of Culture (Ministère de la Culture).
Any association or organiser of an event wishing to erect signs on the public highway for advertising purposes.
