Downtown Event Grants

Montpelier Alive works to create a vibrant and livable Montpelier by celebrating its heart and soul: its downtown. A great way to celebrate is to bring community together through events!

Often, we’re asked to help run events for other organizations who may want to come into the downtown. While we love to see events come to Downtown Montpelier, we do not have the capacity and budget to get directly involved in implementing them. Although we put on our own series of events, taking on other events, even when they include really fun ideas, is generally outside of our ability and scope. Please know that just because we can’t organize your event doesn’t mean we are not in support of you and your efforts.  In addition to our equipment loan program, and access to our downtown event planning handbook, one of the many ways we support events is through our Downtown Event Grant Program!
