Tipperary Festivals and Events Grant Scheme 2023 is now closed.
Festivals and events are crucial to the fabric of life in County Tipperary and they deliver a range of economic, social and cultural benefits. They entertain, they celebrate our communities, showcase our villages and towns and are often an expression of identity and place. They 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 throughout the County that are not solely commercially focused, to support and assist those events that have a tourism/cultural/artistic/sporting or community focus and which contribute significantly to quality of life.
New and Emerging Festivals
Applications from events which are new or emerging and show signs of future potential to develop and can demonstrate that they link in with the objectives of Tipperary County Council are encouraged. It is important that these events are supported as they will promote and encourage innovation and creativity and may have the potential to scale up over time to become premier events. The purpose of this category is to enable an event which emerges mid-year (after the festival deadline for that year) to seek support on an exceptional basis. A festival or event may only apply to this category in its first year. Organisers of such events should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to seek further information.
The guidelines for the scheme are available below for information purposes.
