BTIB Event Funding Grant Application Deadline Extended to February 15th
Over the last couple of decades, Butte has gained a nationwide reputation as a "festival city". And with good reason. Butte not only regularly hosts such huge events as the Montana Folk Festival and the An Ri Ra Montana Irish Festival, but newer undertakings like Matt Boyle's food truck festival last summer and events such as the Butte Rock Festival and Brawls and Kickstart Days. We have hosted a lot over the years here in Butte and thanks to motivated individuals like Boyle, Bill Fisher at the Depot and Monty Klistoff with Nxt Gen Entertainment, more and more events are being planned and hosted in Butte. And not just parties and celebrations, but conferences and business meetings too. The bottom line is all of these functions bring tourists to the Mining City. And tourists mean dollars into the local economy.
If you're part of an event here in town that draws a crowd or if you're still in the planning stages, the Butte Tourism Improvement District has grant money available and the application deadline has been extended to 5pm this Thursday, February 15. Hard copies will be accepted at the Butte Chamber of Commerce at 1000 George Street. You can download an application and get complete information by following the link on this QR code.
See if your event qualifies for funding. If you have any questions or require further details, please contact the Butte Chamber of Commerce at (406) 723-3177.
