Grant Opportunities

Tourism Event Marketing grant

The Discover Surrey Tourism Event Marketing Grant provides eligible associations and organizations  with funding to assist with the costs to promote a festival or event.

This program is designed to provide marketing funding to event organizers for new and existing cultural events, festivals and tournaments that demonstrate the potential to grow tourism and attract overnight visitors to the city of Surrey.

Preference will be given to events that take place during non-peak seasons – November through May.

The intent of the Discover Surrey Tourism Event Marketing Fund is to:

  1. Develop Surrey’s profile as a destination for vibrant arts, culture, food, beverage, recreational and sporting events.
  2. Grow tourism by attracting visitors from outside the city to attend events in Surrey, particularly during non-peak seasons (November – May).
  3. Support events which increase the potential for overnight stays in Surrey.

There will be two application intakes:

  • Wednesday, January 31, 2024, by 4:00 pm
  • Friday, June 28, 2024, by 4:00 pm

To be considered, all applications must be submitted via email to Mary Ann Bell at and must follow the guidelines outlined.
