We want to make sure that visitors know about the events that are taking place in 2023. If you have an event and are interested in reaching visitors, the first step to making that happen is to add your visitor-driven event(s) to our calendar, https://www.visitbatonrouge.com/submit-event/. This is the first resource our staff relies on when promoting events. The sooner you are able to input your confirmed event details, the more time we will have to promote this through our marketing channels and efforts.
We are excited to share an opportunity for you to consider in 2023. Our Festivals & Cultural Events Support Fund Program opens for applicants on Monday, May 8. This program is designed to provide financial support for events that serve both the residents of the Greater Baton Rouge Area and the visitors who travel, for the sense of authenticity and hospitality that our destination exudes!
Any festival or event organizer interested in applying for support funds will need to fill out an application below and submit it no later than Friday, June 7, 2023, by 4:00 p.m.
Requirements for applying to our Support Fund Program:
*Please note: If your event has already been approved for sponsorship, you do not need to reapply. Applications for 2024 will open in Fall 2023.
Applicants will be notified by Monday, June 26, 2023.
