Celebration Grants Program
Celebration Grants are for community-based festivals, cultural celebrations and large-scale parades, in recognition of the entertainment they offer and their contribution to a sense of community among Vancouver residents of diverse cultures, ages, and interests.
This program differs from the regular cultural grants programs. Its mandate includes the participation of non-arts organizations such as neighbourhood houses, residents associations, and community service organizations. Arts organizations are eligible only if they are not already receiving cultural grants.
