The Local Cultural Festivals and Events Fund aims to contribute towards strengthening the festival and events sector across Edinburgh. Applications are sought for awards of between £5,000 and £20,000 from organisations that identify routes to organisational stability, strategic (artistic / business) development and creative engagements.

The Fund seeks to support the work of the city’s year-round cultural festivals and events that are unique to Edinburgh and its residents as they celebrate and bring together the city’s diverse communities, have deep community roots and instil a sense of pride in their local place. The Fund is intended for events and festivals which are not funded by the Council’s Culture Service through the Strategic Partnerships programme.
