Major Events and Sponsorship Program

The aim of the Major Events and Sponsorship Program is to secure, nurture and grow a diverse portfolio of major events that will create economic growth, promote Western Downs nationally and internationally, generate positive social and cultural benefits and inspire the residents of the Western Downs.

These are events that will attract significant numbers of event visitors, participants or media from outside the region and result in substantial and measurable outcomes in the region in which they are held.

Council will consider allocating funds in each annual budget and will advertise for grants twice annually, in March and October. However, Major Events and Sponsorship Grants will only be available while such funds set aside in Council’s annual budget for this purpose remains unexpended.

Please refer to Council’s Community Grants Guidelines for eligibility, assessment criteria and other requirements.
