2018 Flagship Event Fund Now Open for Sydney Surrounds

Source: Destination NSW
Archived 23 Oct 2017 - Posted: 24 Aug 2017
Expressions of Interest are now open for the Regional Flagship Events Program. The Regional Flagship Events Program aims to identify and support events in regional NSW that have the potential to act as a flagship event for the area to draw overnight visitors to the area.

Since it began in 1997, the Regional Flagship Events Program has supported 271 separate events across regional NSW.

On 6 July 2016, the NSW Government announced that the Regional Flagship Events Program would be expanded to include two new funds. There are now three separate funds available:

  • The Incubator Event Fund which supports new events.
  • Flagship Event Fund which supports emerging events to increase their profile and encourage visitation.
  • Event Development Fund which supports the further development of proven flagship events.

The 2018 Flagship Event Fund expressions of interest are now open for Destination Sydney Surrounds North (including the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Hunter, Penrith and Hawkesbury). Eligibility requirements are detailed in the terms and conditions.

Last years’ regional flagship events included:

  • The Roaring 20s Festival and All That Jazz
  • Sculpture at Scenic World
  • Ultra-Trail Australia
  • Orange Wine Festival
  • Dubbo Stampede
  • Bathurst Motor Festival

The Fund will offer successful applicants a one-off annual grant of $20,000 or a triennial grant of $27,500 per year for three years.

Flagship Event Fund grants are only available to events that have been running for more than 2 years.

Stage One applications will need to submit a short form application that addresses the criteria.  Successful applicants will then be required to submit a Stage Two long form application.

For further information on the 2018 Flagship Event Fund and to lodge an expression of interest visit the Destination NSW website.
