Festival Supports Grants Scheme 2018 – Community Event Grants Scheme 2018

Kilkenny County Council has provided funding for festival and event organisers to aid with the development and promotion of events in Kilkenny during 2018. These grant schemes aim to promote and support local community events and to assist those events that support tourism.

The main purpose of the Festival Support Grants scheme is to support festivals and participative events which drive tourism in Kilkenny, underpinning the Council’s Tourism strategy and improve the visitor experience in Kilkenny city and county.

The main purpose of the Community Event Grants Schemes is to provide financial assistance to individuals, groups and organisations engaged in projects, events or developments at local level. The emphasis of the scheme is on providing funding for a diverse range of projects thus ensuring that the limited financial resources available are used to the maximum benefit of the community at large.
