Festivals & Cultural Events Module
The Festivals & Cultural Events Module provides localized metrics on the value of festivals and cultural events to make the case for the ongoing development of the festivals sector.
A festival or cultural event is a celebration that focuses upon a theme and may run for hours to weeks. The module allows users to estimate the number of overnight and day visits with just attendance numbers and a general idea of the geographic draw of the event.
Five festival & cultural event types are available:
- Performing Arts: a festival that can encompass a wide range of performing art genres including music, dance, etc.

- Film/Awards Ceremonies: a festival that revolves around films or an award ceremony.
