Regional Events Acceleration Fund

* indicates a required field.


The $20 million Regional Events Acceleration Fund will support organisations to attract new international and domestic events to regional NSW, or to expand existing regional events. It will bring new events to the regions and will help make existing events even better. It will stimulate regional economies, supporting recovery from the effects of ongoing drought, bushfires, floods and COVID-19.

Events must be located in one or more eligible regional NSW Local Government Areas (LGAs), including Lord Howe Island or the Unincorporated Far West. Projects in Greater Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong are not eligible.
