The City of Edmonton offers grants to help with winter fun!

Neighbourhood Funding

Social events and activities support neighbourhood vibrancy and connection, and winter events are no exception. Communities that play together are stronger!

The Neighbourhood Services Funding Program offers Neighbourhood Micro-Grants for small, local projects and events, with funding requests up to $500. Larger, neighbourhood-wide projects, initiatives and events can apply for $501-$2500 through the Neighbourhood Connections Grant.

See the City’s Neighbourhood Grants page for all application details and deadlines.

Both grants are open to residents, business owners and operators, and non-profit organizations. Activities must build and increase community connections, as well as engage and involve different people in the neighbourhood(s). Initiatives can include block parties, community arts projects, and neighbourhood social or recreation activities.

Please reach out to your Neighbourhood Resource Coordinator if you have any questions.

WinterCity Festivals and Events Grant Program

Local winter festivals and events encourage Edmontonians to carry their passion for their city year round. Winter festival and event organizers contribute to changing how we embrace winter by creating experiences that share the magic of an Edmonton winter to both local community members and international visitors.

We recognize that operating outdoor festivals and events in winter can be challenging and that there are higher operational costs because of the season.

Please see the WinterCity Festivals and Events Grant Program page for application details and deadlines.
