Grants Program

Events Tasmania's Grants Program aims to deliver support to events around the state through a variety of channels. Since it was established in 2002 the program has provided funds to over 1000 events, and in 2014 the program has supported 70 events in 40 different locations around the state over 38 of the 52 weekends of the year.

Funding is provided through the following grants.

Touring grants

Touring grants of up to $15 000 are available to eligible organisers of auto, motorbike, cycle or walking tours in Tasmania during the winter and shoulder season. Funding is based on the number of interstate or international participants staying in paid commercial accommodation for five nights or more, with at least 40 percent of the tour being held in regional areas.

Championship grants

Championship grants of up to $5 000 are on the table for eligible competitions that bring more than 200 competitors and supporters to Tasmania, who stay in paid commercial accommodation for three nights or more, and are able to promote pre- and post-championship travel within the state as part of their event marketing.

Marketing Tasmania grants

Marketing Tasmania grants up to $10 000 in matched funding can be sought by eligible organisations with a new or established event in Tasmania who introduce a specific activity that will bring people to Tasmania, get visitors and locals travelling to a regional part of the state, or get people hearing and talking about Tasmania through a variety of communication channels.

Marketing Tasmania grants are conducted as competative rounds. Please note this grant is currently closed.
