New and returning special event organizers (or their designated representatives) who wish to apply for the next July 2017 to June 2018 cycle of funding must attend this review of new city requirements for all special events. Annually the City of Ventura Community Partnerships Division offers up to $10,000 in awards to event organizers to stage festivals and special events in Ventura that activate our city’s public spaces and increase visitor spending. The grants cover all, or a portion of, City of Ventura Special Event Permit fees. The maximum grant per event is $2000.
To qualify, applicants must be either a (1) Ventura-based nonprofit or (2) a for-profit agency with a Ventura-based nonprofit as a partner. Applications are due April 27. Apply online links:
