The mission of the Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is to provide leadership promoting Boulder’s natural environment, arts, culture, innovation, and the visitor experience to support economic vitality and our quality of life.
To achieve that mission the BCVB has developed The Boulder Sustainable Tourism Plan, which lists as its three major goals:
The BCVB Event Grant Program (EGP) has been designed and implemented to help achieve these goals by investing in the development of new events, as well as the expansion of existing events that identify with the Boulder brand for both residents and visitors with the specific goal of increasing tourism and revenue in mind.
The Event Grant Committee will consider repeat applications from previously funded organizations up to three years. The EGP Committee sees continued funding as contrary to the scope of this grant and its goals to fund new events or assist with the expansion of existing events. Please note this is specific to individual events and not entire organizations. Exceptions will be entertained in the instance that a previously funded event is seeking to dramatically expand marketing efforts or has a new innovative strategy to improve the event profile. Funds will not be provided for Capital projects or general organizational operating expenses.
New Event Grant Program applications are accepted and reviewed quarterly and must be received by the BCVB no later than 5:00PM on:
i. Tuesday, January 9, 2018
ii. Tuesday, April 10, 2018
iii. Tuesday, July 10, 2018
iv. Tuesday, October 9, 2018
v. Tuesday, January 8, 2019
Determination of the award will be made within 90 days of the application deadline.
Late applications will not be considered, nor will applications that are received incomplete or incorrect.
Applicants must electronically submit a completed application with a business plan as PDF documents. Other supplementary material shall be submitted in an appropriate file format.
Applications should be submitted to the attention of: Emiliano Lake-Herrera, Boulder Convention and Visitors Bureau. E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
