The Tourism & Cultural Arts Grant program is designed to assist organizations in hosting events that will promote a positive image to potential visitors, generate overnight visits, extend visitor stays, and create a desire to return. First consideration will be given to new and expanding festivals, sports tournaments, conventions, cultural arts events, and special events benefiting the City of Eau Claire.

The grant funds are provided annually by the City of Eau Claire and Wisconsin Arts Board. Visit Eau Claire reviews applications and awards grants two times a year in April and November.
