Showcasing Live Music

Bohemian Foundation believes that live music is an important part of vibrant communities. Live music events animate public life, foster strong community relationships, strengthen local economies and promote cultural diversity.

Music Event Fund is a competitive grantmaking program that encourages nonprofit organizations to present live music to strengthen communities. Grants of up to $5,000 are available to support single-day and multi-day events that include music as an integral part of the event. Grant funds are only for artist fees, production costs and marketing.

Organizations located in Larimer and Weld counties may apply for funds at least 90 days in advance of the event date. Applications will be accepted as long as funds are available.

We support events in Larimer and Weld counties that:

  • Showcase contemporary music and local artists
  • Provide fair pay for artists and production staff
  • Engage broad and diverse communities, especially youth
  • Feature high quality sound
