Regional events held between July and December 2019 can now apply for NSW Government funding, aimed at driving more overnight visitors to rural and regional towns across the State.

Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith said applications are now open for Round Two of both the 2019 Incubator Event Fund and the 2019 Flagship Event Fund, with more than $500,000 up for grabs.

“These two funds are a great platform for the owners of new and emerging events in our region interested in extra support to help get their event off the ground or grow into something bigger,” Stuart Ayres said.

“The funding grants will assist in attracting more overnight visitors to Penrith, in the hope they stay longer and spend more time exploring everything our region has to offer, putting more tourist dollars into the pockets of our local businesspeople.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said the two funds are part of the Regional Flagship Events Program, an important NSW Government strategy designed to support more grassroots events and kick start local economies.

“Since 2011, the Program has provided more than $6.2 million to 180 events throughout rural and regional NSW,” Mr Marshall said.

“We know that when people visit regional NSW, they stay in local accommodation, buy from local shops and eat at local restaurants and cafes, helping to create more jobs and turbocharge local economies.

“As a country Minister, it’s really important to me that NSW Government support continues to reach every corner of the State’s tourism industry, and I encourage events to apply for this fantastic funding opportunity which is now available.”

The Flagship Event Fund offers an annual grant of $20,000 or a triennial grant of $27,500 to support marketing activities. The Incubator Event Fund offers grants of up to $20,000 to new events to assist with elements such as temporary infrastructure, marketing and promotions, venue hire or attendee research.  Applications to Round Two of both funds close on Sunday, 13 January.
