Patio Lanterns Live Music Funding Program

Calling all restaurants and bars to be part of this exciting province wide event. The Patio Lanterns Live Music Funding Program is a program for venues to apply for financial support for booking live music programming and activations throughout the summer and fall of 2021 as part of the Patio Lanterns Festival. Have some fun with this and offer specials drinks, menus, etc.

The Patio Lanterns Festival kicks off July 14 and is ongoing until October 11. Please read on for more information and how you can get involved.

The goal of the event is to have funded performers at existing bars and restaurant patios across the province and The Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce is pleased to partner with  DEANS in helping distribute the funding in our region.

You don’t have to have a patio to participate, indoor performances may be included as well. There will be a maximum of 5 funded acts per venue and venues will receive a promotion kit to help promote the overall festival.

Please note, not all applicants will receive funding.  All live shows will be listed on the patio lanterns website and will be promoted on the site as well.
