Moorpark, California Arts and Culture Event Services RFP

Arts & Culture Event

The City of Moorpark, California is seeking proposals from qualified organizations with experience planning, promoting and implementing community oriented public arts and culture events to support the activities of the City’s Art In Public Places program.

In recognition of the fact that public art enhances quality of life, the City Council developed the Art In Public Places program. This program requires certain residential, commercial and industrial development projects to either install public artwork or pay an in-lieu fee.

Project Scope

The selected contractor will receive an annual set fee for managing the desired events. Also, the selected contractor may propose additional events and/or activities.

All events are to be available to the public. Events may be ticketed or non-ticketed (free-of-charge) as appropriate for the event. However, the contractor must implement revenue generating elements for each event to offset direct event production costs.

Event Services Requirements

The City intends to award the selected contractor a three (3)-year contract. The contractor will produce events annually, and those events must exhibit sustained and growing popularity in the community.

The desired planning and production services include, but are not limited to, event ideation, design, planning, scheduling, talent procurement and contracting.
