Avon Cultural Council

The goal of the Avon Cultural is to promote meaningful and entertaining in-town programs in support of the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences – open for all to attend. The Avon School field trips and the summer gazebo concerts are examples of applications we have supported as well as the Avon Library activities and the Senior Center programs. Priority given to local venues and programs geared toward senior citizens, teens and the growing multi-cultural population.

FY24 Local Guidelines

The Avon Cultural Council is dedicated to funding the Avon Schools and Avon organizations in their attempt to provide the community with activities supporting the arts, humanities and interpretive sciences. We ask artists to secure a physical connection to the Town of Avon before tendering an idea/concept to the Council for consideration. The Avon Cultural Council will review all applications received and will gladly respond to any applicants requesting assistance. Student Field Trip information see above. Proof of completion and acknowledgement of Council grant is required.
