2017 Applications now being accepted!

 

For the past two years, a group of engaged stakeholders have met in Bayfield to work together to grow Bayfield’s tourism economy. The group has aligned around Bayfield’s DNA of an artistic heritage village set on the shores of Lake Huron, with an underlying core value of sustainability.

The group is working on four streams of destination development which include benchmarking and metrics, destination development strategy, amplifying the Bayfield story, and experience and product development.

ABOUT THE DESTINATION ANIMATION PARTNERSHIP FUND

To enable experience and product development implementation, the Bayfield Destination Animation Fund has been launched in order to create truly unique experiences for both visitors and residents. The fund focuses on enabling feasible projects that are highly shareable and have high impact on the destination.

The 2017 Bayfield Destination Animation Fund has $15,000 available for proposals. Applications may be for any amount from $500 up to $5000. The Destination Animation Selection Committee will review and award the proposals.
