The 2021 Reconnect Festival and Event Program has launched for eligible festivals taking place between April 1, 2021 and March 31, 2022.
Over the last year, festival and event organizers have taken innovative approaches to develop and deliver alternative programming while incorporating enhanced health and safety measures. These innovative ideas are creating opportunities for people across Ontario to reconnect with the beauty and diversity of their communities in new ways, whether in person or online, while providing local jobs.
That’s why the Ontario government is investing $20 million through the 2021 Reconnect Festival and Event Program to provide support to event organizers who are finding new, exciting and engaging ways to deliver local programming during the COVID-19 pandemic.
