Elgin County Economic Development is pleased to announce that the Festival and Event Partnership Program grant recipients for 2014 have been chosen. Events receiving grants for 2014 include Port Stanley Harbourfest ($3,000) and JAMJAM Music Festival ($1,000).

"We are very excited to support these two unique cultural festivals," said Tourism Development Coordinator Kathryn Russell. "This funding will help Elgin County organizations to produce quality festivals and events that will attract visitors to our community."

Applicants selected best met the program criteria, which included but was not limited to, attracting visitors to the County; retaining local spending; and enhancing the quality of place by organizing festivals and events within the community.

This is the fifth year that the County of Elgin has encouraged groups to hold festivals and events by providing contributions totaling $4,000 to community groups that take it upon themselves to organize these events. Elgin County encourages all local festivals and events in the area and hopes to provide the Festival and Event Partnership Program again in 2015.
