Does your organization want to make a difference in the community by hosting a large community event? We want to help you achieve this goal by extending an invitation for you to apply to become one of the City of Largo's Co-Sponsored events.
City Co-Sponsorship assists approved organizations with the costs of their event by waiving a portion of the City's indirect expenses. It includes a waiver of the park rental and discounts on equipment available through the Recreation, Parks & Arts Department. Co-Sponsored groups remain responsible to pay all direct City expenses such as police, staff, supplies, electricity, and other, but less direct costs are decreased or eliminated. Under the Co-Sponsorship guidelines, all applicants have an equal opportunity to apply for City Co-Sponsorship. The City of Largo accepts only 10 Co-Sponsored events each fiscal year, so make sure to get your application in as soon as possible! (Fiscal Year runs October-September).
Applicants must re-apply annually and will be approved on a yearly basis. Applications MUST be complete in order to be considered. The Special Events Committee (comprised of employees from various supporting departments) will review all Co-Sponsorship applications. Staff will then present a prioritized list of recommendations to the City Commission for approval. Co-Sponsorship awards are announced in the summer.
