Incredible News: A Report on $3.5 Million Being Made Available to the State’s Event Organizers

12:10 – 12:50 PM

The Washington State Department of Commerce is making $3.5 million available this summer specifically for festival and events like the ones you produce in communities with a population of 100,000 or less. WFEA and ArtsWA will be administering this fund – we want to go over how to apply for the grant and what will be important to grant reviewers. The intent is to make these funds available to as many events as possible – hear up to date details at this seminar!

Learn best practices for moving forward and planning for the future

Like most other events in the U.S., most festivals and events in the State of Washington have had to postpone or cancel several of their events during COVID-19. Learn what events are doing to cut back on expenses and to generate revenue, especially through sponsorship.
