Celebrate Ontario is a Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport program that helps new and existing festivals and events enhance their programs, activities and services. The program also supports bid and event hosting costs of major one-time events and festivals attracting out-of-province visitors through the Blockbuster category.
Important: as a new online process is being used this year, applicants should register as soon as possible via the new Grants Ontario
web-based application system.
The deadline for applications for Main Stage and Signature grants is November 20, 2012.. Full details, including what’s eligible, how to apply, and when to apply are available on the Ministry program website
. Questions can also be directed to Christine Anderson
, Tourism Industry Advisor, MTCS.
