To support GO TEXAN businesses and promote their Texas made products and the overall GO TEXAN Program, the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) invites cities, communities and organizations  who coordinate public festivals and events across the state to apply for Texas Event Grant funding to support their activities.

The maximum award amount will be up to $5,000 in approved, event-related expenses from TDA’s GO TEXAN marketing program, pending funding allocations. All activities, including but not limited to conferences, fairs, tradeshows, and festivals are encouraged to apply.  By partnering with these events through grants, TDA aims to increase awareness for both the GO TEXAN Program and the individual GO TEXAN businesses that may be participating by showcasing, sampling, and selling their GO TEXAN certified products.  Events can use these funds to assist with advertising costs, create additional collateral and increase attendance. Please click the documents listed below for more details. 


APPLICATION PERIOD: TDA will be accepting applications for calendar year 2021 events from October 1 - December 15, 2020.
