The Fermanagh and Omagh District Council have released their Events and Festivals Sponsorship Fund for 2024-2025, aiming to support organisations/ event organisers who deliver sustainable events including but not limited to niche, specialist, local, regional, national and international events and festivals within the district that;

  • Benefit the local economy
  • Attract visitors to the district
  • Provides social benefits and improve wellbeing
  • Delivers benefits to the host community
  • Utilises media coverage to raise the profile of the Council and the district as an ‘Event Friendly’ destination

What is an Event? 

Defining what an event is can be important for clarity and context. Fermanagh & Omagh District Council describe an event as:

“An organised special occasion and activity of limited duration that brings people together for the primary purpose of participating in an uplifting community, cultural, recreational, sporting, artistic, or entertaining experience”.

An event may be: 

  • Held every year, or twice a year but is not part of a more regular scheduled programme
  • Can be either free or paid entry
  • Can be either run commercially or on a not for profit basis
  • Might be indoors or outdoors, or a combination of both
  • Might be single venue or multi-venue

 Events can take several forms: 

  • Signature / Major events is an event of international/national significance that attracts international / domestic visitors and international/national media coverage
  • Large Event: An event which attracts significant visitor numbers and media interest to a destination
  • Medium Event: An event of regional significance which attracts regional visitors and regional media coverage
  • Small Events: An event that is of significance to the local community and attracts local interest and visitors who are already in the destination
  • Community Events: Small events primarily attracting local audiences that enhance the quality of life of residents, celebrate local identity and culture, and provide a range of community benefits, including participation, well-being, and community connection
