Festivals and Events Grant

The Board of Directors of Explore Waterloo Region is very pleased to invite applications to the Festivals and Events 2020 grant program, available for events held in Waterloo Region.

This opportunity is made possible by the municipal accommodation tax in Waterloo Region, which will generate sufficient funds to provide support for new and existing festivals and events that drive overnight visitation into the region.

The second call for applications opened January 8, 2020 with a deadline for submission of March 2, 2020 for events taking place after June 1, 2020.

Applications for funding will be reviewed by a committee of the Board of Directors and funding will be awarded based on predetermined criteria outlined in the Grant Guidelines.

All submissions must be emailed to [email protected] on or before March 2, 2020 at 5:00 p.m.

*Please note, all applicants must view the Festivals and Events Grant Application Presentation in order to be considered.
