Major Event Partnerships Program

Events Tasmania's Major Event Partnerships Program provides funding to significant events that return substantial economic outcomes for our state. The Program is a contestable process with applications considered by the Major Events Group – a body made up of Government and industry representatives – against set criteria. The Program aims to deliver a regionally and seasonally balanced event portfolio for Tasmania that includes a variety of event types.

How to be involved

Events Tasmania is not the only source for government event funding, but when we do get behind an event we have some clear objectives and deliverables to negotiate and agree. Currently there are very few gaps in our event portfolio but we are always happy to hear from event organisers who have a significant event proposition for the state.

Get in touch

To help point you in the right direction and to save you time submitting proposals that may not achieve our objectives, please contact us and make a time to discuss your event.

Applicants for major event funding are required to enter in a grant deed with the Tasmanian Government. Please note that Events Tasmania does not own, operate or facilitate events.
