In 2017/2018 Limerick City and County Council directly invested €500,000 into the festival and events sector. This investment has provided the necessary stimulus to elevate Limerick’s festival and events offer. 

In 2018, the newly formed Cultural SPC along with the Limerick City and County Council Culture and Arts Office and members of the sector, have recommended further strategic investment in Festivals/Events in 2018/2019 with a new open call.

This competitive, transparent open call, now open, offers the opportunity for funding for festivals, events and cultural heritage events under two Strands, for Festivals/Events taking place from the 1st October 2018 and 30th September 2019.  

Closing date : 5pm Tuesday 19th June 2018

Full guidelines and application forms are available below.

A Festivals and Events Grant Scheme Clinic will take place in Newcastlewest Library on Friday 1st of June at 15:30 for anyone interested in making an application or with queries regarding the process.
