BCFFE Funded Events

BC Fairs, Festivals and Events Recovery Funding

People throughout B.C. will be able to enjoy more arts, culture, sports and community occasions as the Province supports more than 680 events.
“We’re thrilled that people can once again safely enjoy their local fairs, festivals and events with their families and friends,” said Melanie Mark, Minister of Tourism, Arts, Culture and Sport. “We heard overwhelmingly from event organizers that grants, not loans, were key to keeping their doors open to the public and workers employed. Our government answered their call to action, as we know the major impact these community gatherings have on our mental health and local businesses around them.”

The Government of B.C. is providing nearly $30 million through one-time grants to eligible event organizers to support their efforts to resume safely. Grant amounts for each event are as much as 20% of the total event budget, for a maximum of $250,000.

Events that have received the Fairs, Festivals and Events Recovery Fund grant include the Concord Pacific Dragon Boat Festival, Pacific Rim Whale Festival, Quesnel Children’s Festival, Elk Valley Pride Festival and many more in 134 communities throughout British Columbia.
