Abstrakt / Utdrag
The study's main focus is to determine the role of municipal departments in the development and management of festivals in the province of Ontario, Canada, through the conduction of a survey delivered to Parks, Recreation and Economic Development officials all over the region. Respondents are asked generally about festivals and special events in their communities and about the specific ones in which their municipality is involved as well as the types of involvement: policies, staffing, budgeting, promotion, benefits sought and problem areas. The results show little consistency across the region regarding the roles of the municipalities are playing in the development and management of festivals and other events. While most common issues are the lack of volunteers, limited resources and difficulties in the coordination of large communities, unpredictable weather and competition from other events; most of the municipalities support such events with facilities, finances, staff, clean-up, equipment and promotion.
