Festival Event Grant
The City Festival/Event Grant Program is designed to assist New Westminster not-for-profit organizations with the delivery of festivals and events in the community. Festivals and events must align with the City’s values for a healthy and vibrant community that enhance the quality of life, tourism, culture, recreation, and provide economic benefits. The program is intended to encourage the development of event capacity, organization efficiency, and best practices. The sponsorship is provided on a cost-sharing basis and applicants are encouraged to develop a diverse funding/income base and seek self-sufficiency as evidence of sustainable activity. To provide organizations with funding certainty, the City Festival/Event Grant will be for a term of one to three years, at Council’s discretion.
