The City of Culver City (City) recognizes the community and economic benefits associated with special events. In effort to continue to encourage special events to be produced in Culver City, the City has adopted a Special Events Grant Program. The Special Events Grant Program provides financial support to two categories of events:
- Community/Charitable Events: Events that serve or benefit locally based organizations, causes and/or Culver City residents. Culver City-based organizations and events that serve the Culver City community specifically, receive priority funding.
- Signature Events: Large-scale events that promote Culver City regionally, attract visitors, provide measurable economic benefits to the City and enhance the quality of life within Culver City with recreational, cultural, social and/or educational activity of interest to the community.
Grants are available through an application-based process to assist qualified events in the form of fee waivers for City permits, in-kind and/or direct staffing services.
The application period for 2019/2020 Special Event Grant Program Applications has ended. Final grant awards are anticipated to be considered by the City Council on August 26, 2019, at which time this page will be updated with Award Recipient Details.
