New Events Grant Program

We are currently not accepting applications for the New Events Grant Program. All grant funds have been conditionally awarded.

Funds may become available only if committed projects cancel or cannot use all of their requested funds.

The dates to watch for are as follows:

Monday, April 1, 2019

Monday, July 1, 2019

The new events grant program is designed to generate economic impact and increase media awareness of the state as an event destination by securing or creating new events in communities. Applicants must meet the minimum eligibility requirements and point thresholds in order to be considered for this opportunity.

Eligible events must be new to Minnesota and open to the public. Applicants must demonstrate support from the local tourism organization; have available lodging capacity and agree to generate other funding (minimally two-thirds of cash expenses).
