About the Waterford Festivals Website

The Waterford Festivals website was co-designed by internal and external users and acts as an information portal for festival organisers.

Organisers can register, apply and manage their online applications for funding, with information holding for the following year’s submission.

Visit our “FAQ’s” section which covers topics from Event Management and Funding, to Insurance.  Our “Contact Us” section describes the roles and responsibilities of the festivals support staff and contact details.  

A calendar gives a preview of events and festivals taking place in Waterford City & County throughout the year.

Our online resource videos will walk you through topics such as health and safety at events, the roles and responsibilities of festival organisers and other topics such as child protection.   Waterford City & County Council is committed to assisting groups and organisations with an emphasis on providing funding for a diverse range of events that are inclusive and add to the reputational value of Waterford as a happening place.
