Funding and Grants

The ACT Event Fund has been established as a key mechanism for stimulating and fostering a range of positive economic, social and community outcomes for the Canberra region through the festival and events sector.

It assists eligible event organisers to develop, market and promote their events in a way that helps maximise these outcomes, while also helping to fill identified calendar gaps and support sustainable growth opportunities.

Within that context, the aims and objectives of the ACT Event Fund are as follows:

• To facilitate a vibrant and innovative events culture within the ACT.
• To encourage the development of tourism in the ACT and increase economic development opportunities.
• To encourage the involvement of local residents in events and festivals that can facilitate positive interaction, cultural activity and a strong community identity among the citizens of our diverse community.
• To provide support to events and festivals that are of high quality, well planned, well managed, viable and sustainable.
