The Event Grants Program provides funding opportunities for events that focus on priorities for Strathbogie Shire Council. An annual program of events within the Shire contributes to the community’s social health, assists to raise awareness of the destination to identified markets, provides economic benefit to local businesses and directly assists to increase the average length of stay of visitors. Strathbogie Shire Council is open to supporting opportunities to attract or develop an event with regional and state significance, relevant to available resources.

Applications are sought for events that:

  • Promote community engagement and participation
  • Support gender equality and social inclusion and improve accessibility
  • Contribute to building healthy and vibrant communities
  • Increase economic development, tourism and the visitor economy
