Our intent is to produce events rain or shine and use tents and/or canopies depending on the weather conditions to protect artists and equipment. It is unlikely we would cancel due to a heat advisory, though we have cancelled due to air quality advisories. In the event of extreme warm weather we provide cooling resources for artists and staff. Our artist contract includes the following rain out clause: "In the unlikely event that the performance is rained out, as determined by the City's representative three hours prior to the scheduled performance, performers will be compensated at 33% of the original performance fee."

Include a sample of your work. If you are a performer you must include at least one video or audio link of your work, or we cannot consider you. If you are a fine arts/visual artist, you must provide a link to your online portfolio and/or submit one or more images of your work. We need something besides your artist statement/description to make you stand out from the other 100+ artists to give us an experience of what you have to offer.
Please take into account that all EUGfun programming is outdoors and we are unable to accommodate stage lighting effects. All materials and/or performances should be appropriate for outdoor display/performance.
Yes. ALL artists, even those wishing to return to EUGfun MUST fill out a new application. Please be sure to fill out the form completely as we are unable to use information from previous season applications. Thank you!
Yes! The City of Eugene compensates artists. Fees vary from artist to artist depending on any number of factors such as size and number of performances, ancillary workshops, travel and housing needs etc. Each artist contract is individually negotiated once a match in the schedule and material has been determined.
The Downtown Program Fund supports applicants who wish to produce all aspects of their own events, with the City as a sponsor. The EUGfun! Call to Artists is for individuals and organizations who would like to be part of programming the City of Eugene is producing. You are welcome to apply for both programs.
