Event Hosting Program

Please note applications must be made in the calendar year in which the event takes place.  

If the event takes place early in the New Year exceptions will be given to the “2 month prior to event” requirements in the guidelines.

The Event Hosting Program provides a tool designed to assist local organizations to attract high impact events to our community. In addition to the immediate economic benefits associated to hosting events, this program is part of the City’s strategy to showcase and promote our City with the objective of long-term economic development. Individuals, organizations or businesses may submit a written application to the Parks, Recreation and Leisure Services Department.


"Thank you so very much for your support of Near North Voices' events. Having support like this from the city administration is a huge boost to our group's confidence and their sense of value in the community."

--Adam Adler, Near North Voices
