Events and Festivals Grant Program

2021-2022 Events and Festival Grant Program - Now Open

Events and festivals provide significant social and economic benefits for the shire. In recognition of the positive outcomes for community and business, Council runs an annual Events and Festival Grant Program.

The program has three different tiers to enable all events and festivals to apply, depending on size, focus and complexity.

In addition to this grant program, Council can assist event and festival organisers with a range of services all year round, such as assistance with permits and legislation, promotional opportunities, other grant funding, or general advice around event-planning coordination.

The 2021-2022 program is open for groups and organisations seeking funding and/or in-kind support for event or festivals occurring before 31 December, 2022.

Please read the grant guidelines before submitting starting your application. Applications close 5pm Monday 3 May, 2021.

Due to Covid-19, our annual Grants Celebration for 2020 was a little different; online, rather than hosting our annual presentation function.
