The program offers community organizations, businesses and individuals the opportunity to use Lindsay’s Downtown as an event venue, and by holding the event downtown, the BIA can offer up to $2000 in financial support, in addition to assistance with administration, planning and promotion!
Events must take place between May 30th and December 31st, 2022.
Events must take place in the geographical area of Lindsay Downtown.
The Lindsay Downtown BIA, whose mandate is to ‘make the downtown a good place to do business’, recognizes the benefit to having events take place in our downtown, and is eager to support those who wish to coordinate events here. This adds to the vibrancy of our downtown, and can be a direct benefit to our businesses.
A maximum of 5 events per year will be chosen, and will be considered on the criteria of community inclusivity, overall benefit to the downtown, and that the types of events are varied and do not overlap with the planned events coordinated by the LDBIA.
