Community Festival Funding

Supporting your community festivals

We believe in the importance of bringing communities together through arts and culture to chat, meet each other and have fun. We know that community festivals strengthen communities and develop a rich culture and economy.

Are you arranging a community festival in 2024-2025? If so, why not apply for funding to support your event. We’re offering a total of £35k funding for charities, organisations and individuals in our wonderful borough. You can apply for between £200 and £2k for your festival.

Deadline: 29th February 2024

Last year, we supported all sorts of exciting events from Day of the Dead, Coronation celebrations, tea parties and community dinners. Scroll down for a full list of events funded for 2023/24.

This year, we particularly welcome applications that celebrate St. Patrick's Day, Pride, Windrush, South Asian Heritage Month, Black History Season, and the Olympics and Paralympics.

Do contact us on events@camden.gov.uk if you have any queries.

Good luck with your application!
