2020 IFEA World Festival & Event City Award Program Moves to 2021

With the 65th Annual IFEA Convention, Expo & Retreat, presented by Haas & Wilkerson Insurance moving to 2021, we have made the difficult decision to move the IFEA World Festival & Event City Award Program in the same direction.

The IFEA World Festival & Event City Award recognizes those cities and markets that have successfully provided an environment conducive to successful Festivals and Events. During this COVID-19 Pandemic, cities across the globe have been going above and beyond to not only support their Festival & Event community, but their entire community, more than ever. We absolutely want to recognize all the efforts that cities have made to support the Festivals & Events within their communities during this time. But we also understand that dedicated time and resources may not be readily available to put entries together for the 2020 IFEA World Festival & Event City Award, and if there is extra time and resources, we recognize those resources may need to be directed towards efforts to support their own organization, city and community.

So, for now, we push pause on the 2020 IFEA World Festival & Event City Award Program and look forward to returning in 2021. Until then, please keep the IFEA World Festival & Event City Award Program in your thoughts as you and your city move forward this year, and we’ll work on adding some additional elements to the World Festival & Event City Awards Program to recognize the additional efforts your city has been taking on to support Festivals and Events during this time.

We look forward to celebrating with you next year with the 2021 IFEA World Festival & Event City Award Program!

Is Your City Supportive of Festivals & Events?


Does your city openly encourage, support, learn from and recognize positive local environments for festivals & events? If the answer is YES, then it is time for your city to consider entering the IFEA World Festival & Event City Award!

Festivals and events have such a tremendous impact both on the community and the economy within the cities they serve, but the partnership with and support from the local community is critical to the success and sustainability of existing festivals and events, as well as the ability to attract and encourage new events.

IFEA is pleased to recognize those cities and markets that have successfully embraced and worked to provide an environment conducive to successful festivals and events with the IFEA World Festival & Event City Award.
With past winning cities such as Sydney, Australia; London, England; Johannesburg, South Africa and Shanghai, China to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Louisville, Kentucky; Maribor, Slovenia; Reykjavik, Iceland; Nice, France; Rotorua, New Zealand and many more . . . we look forward to adding your city to the list!

For each year's selected cities, the IFEA World Festival & Event City Award provides:
  • A strong platform from which to recognize the success of current and on-going efforts by every component of your community;
  • A clear positioning statement to encourage continued infrastructure, policy and process enhancement and expansion; and
  • A powerful marketing statement for use in recruiting and encouraging new festivals, events and businesses.
The IFEA is currently accepting entries for the 2020 World Festival & Event City Award.

Encourage Your City To Enter Today!
