Regional Events funding open

Applications for the State Government's Regional Events and Festivals Program and Community Events Development Fund are now open.

Both programs aim to develop a strong calendar of regional events throughout SA, helping to attract local, interstate and international visitors and boost the State's economy.

The Regional Events and Festivals Program helps cover the costs of marketing and promotional activities for events which successfully promote SA's regions as tourism destinations.

The Community Events Development Fund provides up to $5,000 in financial support for new, smaller or community-based events.

There has been $386,000 committed to fund the 2017/18 Regional Events and Festival Program.

An extra $70 million in tourism funding has been invested to market SA nationally and internationally, as well as attracting major events to the State.

Applications close on 16 March, and will support events held after 1 September 2017. Successfull applicants will be notified in July.
