Event Support Fund

The Event Support Fund recognises the benefits of events to our community and municipality, including tourism and the local economy.

Through this program, Council provides assistance to new and existing events that provide significant social and economic benefits to our communities.  Support will be considered for events that meet one of the following:

  • New or emerging events
  • Existing events which provide significant economic and/or social benefit to the region
  • Existing events that have been funded for more than three years will have to show a new or innovative element to their event to continue to receive funding.
If the event is unable to proceed in the format and timeframe initially planned due to further restrictions or other unforeseen circumstances, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a variation proposal. Applicants should make contact with Council‘s Economic Development and Events Support Officer to discuss their event prior to submitting a variation proposal.


Event support is available in the form of event sponsorship and/or logistical support.
