Applications for Waterford City & County Council’s Festivals & Events Grants Scheme 2023 are closing for applications soon.
The scheme aims to help support events across Waterford which help contribute towards making Waterford a more vibrant and sustainable place.
This year’s application has an increased emphasis on sustainability and the Council is looking to work with festivals and events on delivering Waterford’s goal of becoming Ireland’s first carbon neutral area.
Waterford Council in partnership with GIY in delivering this year’s Harvest Festival, showcased many of the sustainability measures that festival and event organisers can adopt to make their event more sustainable including banning all single use plastics, encouraging active travel to events, promoting recycling and using more sustainable power sources.
Applications must be submitted online at www.waterfordfestivals.ie where applicants can also find resources to assist in delivering their event. Online training for event organisers will also be announced on Waterford Council’s social media.
The closing date for applications is midnight Sunday 27th November 2022.
