Festivals and Events Subsidy Program

 
Canada Day event

Festival and events enhance our communities and the lives of our citizens. In 2017, we supported 150 events. These events play an important role in Calgary's growth as an active, vibrant and creative city.

Program

All applications are reviewed by the Event Advisory Committee and our festival and events team. They determine eligibility for subsidy. Events will receive a percentage of their City service costs covered by subsidy as determined by their application score.

Subsidy application

Applications for the 2018 subsidy are now open. We will be accepting applications from  October 1 to October 31. Late applications will not be considered.

For more information on the Festivals and Events Subsidy program, read the Festival and Event Subsidy Application Guidelines.
