Hello producers!

Thank you for your interest in creating PVDFest 2022.

Applying for Producer funds means that you want to do larger and more complex programming; along with that you must be open and able to present during August & September 2022. These programs will be showcased throughout the city and the downtown. If you have a location in mind, let us know. If you don’t that’s ok, if your project receives funding, we will help you choose a location.

Applying for Producer funds, puts you in a different category than a solitary performer or band. You are taking on the responsibility of a manager, director, and employer. The PVDFest team will have high expectations regarding your flexibility, your ability to clearly communicate along with your organizational and creative problem-solving skills.


We are requiring that applicants have an organizational partner that will be the fiscal agent for the project. This can be a non-profit or for-profit partner. You will have to upload proof of incorporation or non-profit status.

Here’s why:

  • A fiscal agent helps with cash flow, PVDFest checks can be slow.
  • A fiscal agent shares responsibility and helps a producer build connections and capacity.
  • Producing is about partnerships. PVDFest seeks to foster new partnerships in the City to support community and encourage new creative endeavors


**If you are a representative of a non-profit organization or a for-profit business, you do not need to find an outside partner.
