Music Programs

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 $2,500 are available to support single- and multi-day events that include popular contemporary music as an integral part of the event. Grant funds are only for local artist fees and production costs. Funds cannot be used to support national touring acts or bands with no members who reside in Larimer or Weld County.

Organizations hosting events in Larimer and Weld counties may apply for funds at least 60 days in advance of the event date. Applications will be accepted while funds are available.

We support events in Larimer and Weld counties that:

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