Local Community Festivals Grant Scheme 2021


Local Community Festivals Grant Scheme 2021

 

Galway City Council announced the Local Community Festivals Grant Scheme for 2021, inviting local communities planning festivals or events in their areas in the city in the coming months to apply for a small scale grant under this scheme.

In total 12 projects have been approved funding for a variety of events/festivals throughout the city organised by local residents.

Galway City Council supports community festivals in local areas to encourage participation in community life. The Council will support festivals or events which are organised and run by local residents as a way to reconnect the local community in line with the next and final phase of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Public health measures, guidance and advice that will come into place during September and October must be followed to enable us to come together to protect ourselves and to live our lives to the fullest extent possible.
