    Apply now for our 2017 Regional Festivals & Events Programme

    Festivals and events can now apply for funding under our 2017 Regional Festivals and Participative Events Programme, which last year supported 205 events across the country to the value of over €690k.

    The Fáilte Ireland Regional Festivals and Participative Events Programme supports festivals and events which drive local tourism and help to improve the experience on the ground by bringing Ireland to life for the visitor. Applications opened this week (Monday 5th December) and will close at 12.00 noon on Monday 16th January.


    You can now access a copy of the Programme Guidelines, which outline the purpose of the programme, the qualifying conditions, the minimum eligibility thresholds along with the evaluation criteria or make your application online through Fáilte Ireland’s Trade Portal.

    Speaking about the funding programme, Fáilte Ireland’s Head of Evaluation and Research, Caeman Wall explained:
    “Fáilte Ireland’s 2017 Regional Festivals & Participative Events Programme plays a big part in creating compelling experiences that will encourage our target audiences to choose Ireland in 2017 and come to visit us throughout the entire calendar year. Furthermore, these events play a role in generating local employment and community engagement. We are delighted to be opening the application process for next year and look forward to receiving the applications.”
