Brilliant ideas that can be turned into “cornerstone” events for the community may be eligible for funding under the NSW Government’s 2018 Event Incubator Fund.
Organisers of new and second-year events held between July and December 2018 are being encouraged to apply for the scheme, which helps support events held in rural and regional NSW.
The fund offers a one-off grant of up to $20,000 for new and existing smaller-scale events. The funding can be used to help events get off the ground or be turned into something bigger and better.
It could be used to help with activities such as marketing, public relations, venue hire or attendee research.
The Mid-Western Regional Council is encouraging all new and existing smaller-scale event organisers to learn more about this wonderful opportunity that will help attract more visitors to the Mudgee region who will stay in local hotels, dine in restaurants and shop at boutiques and markets.
The Incubator scheme is part of the Regional Flagship Events Program, which is managed and administered through Destination NSW.
Applications for round two of the 2018 Incubator Event Fund are open now until Sunday 18 March 2018.
