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.
Examples of Major Events that have been supported by Events Tasmania in the past are:
- AFL Hawthorn games
- Australian Wooden Boat Festival
- Festival of Voices
- V8 Supercars
- MONA FOMA
- Targa Tasmania
Regional Events must have the potential to delivery significant benefits to the region in which they are conducted.
Examples of Regional Events that have been supported by Events Tasmania in the past are:
- Burnie Tennis Challenger
- Longford Revival Festival
- Tasmanian Open Dancesport Championship
- Devonport Triathlon
- Moorilla Hobart International Tennis
- Wildside MTB
- Breath of Fresh Air Film Festival
