Festival Funding

Festival Funding

Tipperary County Council is calling on organisers of festivals and events across the county to apply for financial support under a new funding scheme for 2018.

The Tipperary Festivals and Events Scheme 2018 has been designed as a one-stop-shop for festivals and events with a tourism, cultural, artistic, heritage, sporting or community focus to receive County Council funding in 2018.

Festival and event organisers previously funded through any section of Tipperary County Council will now need to apply under this scheme. This is the first time that funding for festivals and events will be decided on a county-wide basis through a single open call. Events that can apply under the scheme include large-scale celebratory events such as St Patrick’s Day parades, regattas or race events, agricultural shows, arts and cultural festivals and local food festivals. The rule of thumb for events is that they should be festive, celebratory or commemorative, showcasing and highlighting the richness of the county.

Any festivals or events wishing to receive County Council funding in 2018, should visit the website www.tipperarycoco.ie and go to arts section or email festivals@tipperarycoco.ie with any queries. Closing date Wed 6 Dec 2017 at 12 noon.
