Major Events Funding

Major and Regional events cover the full range of events, from festivals to sport, and music to visual arts and celebration events. They may be fully commercial, participatory or audience driven and have a wide engagement with Tasmanian and/or regional communities.

The program supports a wide range of event products and is open all year round.

The program is highly competitive and invites enquiries and proposals from individuals or organisations that believe they have a potential major or regional event concept or product.

Major Events must have the potential to deliver significant benefits to Tasmania.

Regional Events must have the potential to delivery significant benefits to the region in which they are conducted.
