Calling all Festival and Event Organisers
Each year Waterford City & County Council provide funding for festival and event organisers to aid with the development and promotion of events in Waterford City and County. The purpose of the grant scheme is to help groups and organisations to fund a diverse range of events that are inclusive and add to the reputational value of Waterford as a ‘happening place’.
This year submissions can be made online via a new information website www.waterfordfestivals.ie, which has been co-designed with both staff and festival and event organisers.
A helpline number, 0761102169, will be available during office hours where staff will answer queries in relation to online applications.
We are also holding ‘Walk In’ information sessions at:
- Waterford Central Library on Wednesday 16th October from 6-8pm and
- Dungarvan Library on Thursday 17th October from 6-8pm, with no appointment necessary.
To enable online registration festival and event organisers are asked to bring their organisation’s generic email address with them .
To apply, please visit www.waterfordfestivals.ie.
Closing date for applications is 5pm Friday, 8th November 2019.
