Tipperary Festivals and Events Grant Scheme 2024

Frequency: Annual

Status: OPEN

Closing Date for applications: 12 noon, Wednesday, 14th February 2024

Tipperary County Council invites applications from organisations/organisers planning Festivals and Events to take place in County Tipperary in 2024.

Festivals and events are central to the fabric of life in County Tipperary and 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 and events that are not solely commercially focused throughout the County, to support and assist those events that have an artistic, community, heritage, sporting or tourism focus and which contribute significantly to quality of life.

 

The Tipperary Festivals & Events Strategy defines Festivals and Events as follows:

Festival: A collection of events that celebrate a single or general theme and are promoted as one within this theme, occurring within a defined timeframe.

Event: A celebration, activity, exhibition or staged performance that is open to the general public for a limited time (not necessarily free of charge). An example of an event is a St Patrick's Day Parade, community show/day, community sports event, public exhibition or showcase.

 

New and Emerging Festivals or Events

Applications from festivals and 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 festivals and 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 of operation. Organisers of such events should contact artsoffice@tipperarycoco.ie to seek further information.
