ACT Event Fund


The ACT Government plays an active role in stimulating and fostering a range of positive economic, social and community outcomes for the Canberra region through the festivals and events sector.

The ACT Event Fund supports eligible event organisers to develop, market and promote their events, which enables a vibrant, innovative event culture within the ACT and assists in developing a diverse, year-round events calendar for locals and visitors alike.

Support under the ACT Event Fund 2020 is made available through a Main Round of funding (Part A) and Community Event Funding (Part B).

ACT Event Fund - Main Round (Part A) - Funding support available through the Main Round has been categorised under two tiers.

Community Event Funding (Part B) - Community Event Funding has been established to provide support to creative individuals, groups or organisations with great ideas to deliver event and festival activity in Canberra’s town centres and suburbs (outside of the Canberra City centre and Parliamentary Triangle).
