2024 Tipp Festival & Events Grant Scheme Opens

1484

Tipperary county council is now taking applications for the 2024 Tipperary Festivals and Events Grant Scheme – the closing date is 12 noon on Wednesday February 14th.

The council provides funding annually as it considers Festivals and Events to be central to the fabric of life in County Tipperary and that they also deliver a range of economic, social and cultural benefits. Festivals and events can represent arts, cultural, heritage and sporting assets and make a positive contribution in influencing the perception of County Tipperary.

Tipperary County Council aims to promote and support local festivals and events that are not solely commercially focused throughout the County for the benefits they provide.

The funding is available at three levels; Community up to €2,500,  Municipal ranges from up to  €7,000 to €15,000 for larger events and Premier where upwards of €30,000 in funding  is available.  Full details can be viewed  on the Council website at tipperarycoco.ie. There is also a category designed to support  festivals and events which are new or emerging and show signs of future potential to develop  – such projects can apply for funding even  if the event emerges mid-year after the funding application deadline –  but this stream can only be used once for the particular event.
