Festival and Events Microgrant Program
Calgarians are looking for ways to safely participate in public events like they did before the COVID-19 pandemic. This Microgrant program supported the additional costs for events to meet changing public health guidelines.
The application period for this Microgrant program closed – November 13, 2020.
About the program
The Festivals and Events Microgrant Program has closed for this year.
It is a program for not-for-profit, charitable organizations or Calgary Business Improvement Areas. Events could be in-person or virtual/online and had to take place in 2020.
More than 35 events received funds from this program in 2020, supporting safe arts, culture, sports and recreation events for citizens to enjoy during the COVID pandemic.
Calgary’s festival and event community has been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to work hard to find ways to support the normally active and vibrant festival and event industry. We are looking forward to citizens and visitors being able to enjoy Calgary’s community spirit safely.
