About this grant

This renewal grant supports the continuation of several community festivals, which are operated by and supported through the Greater Flint Arts Council. Using a coordinated marketing strategy, the grantee leads a coalition of stakeholders that are dedicated to improving the image of Flint through increased participation in summertime festivals and events. The project seeks to break down barriers to economic growth and generate public interest in the redevelopment of downtown Flint. Since 1999, the Parade of Festivals has increased the number and diversity of people having a memorable time in downtown Flint. This year will mark the 13th year of support for the Parade of Festivals.
