Festival and Community Event Development

Festivals & Events can help create vibrant communities and provide an opportunity to showcase our unique culture.

The new Festival and Community Event Development Program was revised to better align with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage’s mandate and Government’s Culture Action Plan.  The objectives of the program are to improve the sustainability and event hosting capacity of unique community events and to support home-grown events that promote or strength the unique character of the community.
