Elgin County is pleased to present the Festival and Event Partnership Program (FEPP) again in 2014 for local groups that take it upon themselves to develop festivals and events that will meet the County’s tourism goals:
- Increase the amount of people that visit Elgin;
- Increase the length of stay of visitors; and,
- Increase the amount of money that visitor’s spend.
In 2014, the FEPP will provide up to $4,000 of funding to support several qualifying festivals and events in Elgin County. The FEPP funding will not be limited to a predetermined number of festivals or events or a specific amount per festival or event. It is important to note that only events located in Elgin County are eligible for this funding.
FEPP contributions will assist in attracting visitors to the County; retaining local spending; and enhancing the quality of place within the community.
A copy of the FEPP application can be downloaded by visiting: www.elgintourist.com/fepp. Applications must be submitted by Wednesday, April 16, 2014 to qualify.
