Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Event Development (continued)

 The following is a continuation of my Event Development Series. Several months ago, I started the series with the first section, “Initial Development”. The second section is entitled “Research and Preliminary Planning”. Now that you and your team have decided to proceed with the event, it’s time to get serious! As suggested previously, any thoughts and idea are more then welcome!

Research and Preliminary Planning

You’ve determined that you “financially” want to proceed with your festival or event and you and your committee have completed plenty of “research”. Now it’s time to start your “Preliminary Planning”.


Preliminary Planning – Required Elements

This could be the next step in your event development or it could be your last step! I have placed this section here because I believe that you need all the "Required Elements" in place before you make your final plans.

1. What Community Support is Available?
In order to hold any event, there must be community support. Support not only includes manpower, but it also includes political support, town staff support, business support (especially retail) and community resident support. In previous sections I have outlined these areas in depth, but I can't emphasis enough that you will need all of these support "elements" to hold a successful event. (To be continued)
