Festivals & Events News

Last year, in response to changing public health restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic and to support festival and event organizers, we condensed our 90-day process to a 30-day application process to review and approve festivals and events. In preparation for the 2022 event season we are transitioning back to our 90-day application process.

As of January 1, 2022, we will require 90 days to process event applications. We are making this change to ensure we can work with event organizers through the planning and approval process with enough time to complete all necessary aspects for successful events.

Festivals & Events Subsidy Program

The City of Calgary Festivals and Events Subsidy Program will be accepting applications for 2022 events from October 1 until October 31, 2021, as per our regular schedule. Unlike last year, we are not rolling over any applications from 2021 into 2022. All events will need to submit new applications for FESP 2022.

Applications will be available on calgary.ca starting October 1, 2021.

We will be accepting applications from October 1 until 11:59pm MT on October 31, 2021.

We continue doing our best to support Calgary’s festival and event industry.
