Events Tasmania's Grants Program for events occurring in 2014 is NOW CLOSED.


Events Tasmania provides grants to private business, clubs, associations and community groups.

The following grants are available:

New Idea Grants

New Idea grants are offered as seed funding to event projects that will establish a new or innovative event product in Tasmania, or substantially evolve the operations of an existing event.

New Idea projects must deliver substantial benefits to the region in which they are held. The communities involved as workers, volunteers, participants and audiences must also benefit from the project.

Events Tasmania will work closely with the successful applicants in the development of the project.

If you have an event project which you believe could qualify, please visit the New Idea Grants section.

Small Project Grants

Small Project grants are offered to assist event organisers to undertake a specific project that will improve their existing event or will help to create a new event.

Examples of small strategic projects that would be suitable for this grant are targeted marketing initiatives, new activities within an event, expansion of an aspect of an event, a pilot program to test a new event concept, purchase of essential equipment, or to employ someone to deliver a new program.

If you have an event project that you believe could qualify, please visit the Small Project Grants section to check the selection criteria, guidelines and examples of small event projects.
