Events and Festivals Grant Program

The annual Events & Festivals Grant Program has now closed and will reopen in 2021.

The assessment panel’s recommendations for the Events & Festivals Grant Program 2020/2021 were presented at the Ordinary Council Meeting on Wednesday 22 July 2020 for Council endorsement.

Applicants to the program will receive a letter with the outcome of their submission in early August.

The annual program is for groups and organisations seeking funding and/or in-kind support for events and festivals staged within the shire. The program has three different tiers to enable all events and festivals to apply depending on size, focus and complexity.

The Events & Festival Grant Program is reviewed annually. This year, multi-year agreements were identified as an improvement, and the inclusion was approved at the February 2020 Council meeting.
