Description

The Festivals & Cultural Events Support Fund was launched in 2016 by the Buncombe County Tourism Development Authority (BCTDA) and is designed to provide financial support for events that both serve the residents of Buncombe County and the visitors that travel to the Asheville area for the sense of authenticity and welcoming spirit that the destination exudes. 

The primary purposes of this fund are to:

  • Support and preserve cultural identity within Buncombe County;
  • Stimulate the creation of new, or expansion of existing, festivals and cultural events; and 
  • Contribute to the financial viability and long-term sustainability of the area’s festivals and cultural events.

Nonprofit organizations conducting festivals and cultural events in 2023 are invited to submit applications for grant funds. 

The deadline for this grant cycle is September 27, 2022, at 5:00 PM ET. Awards will be announced in late October.
