The Town established the Special Event Grant program to increase the number of day and overnight visitors by encouraging sustainable year-round events to be enjoyed by the Yarmouth community. The Special Event Grant program is intended to promote and enhance tourism with an emphasis on encouraging events during the off- or shoulder seasons.
