Events Partnership Program

Events Partnership Program
​The Events Partnership Program (EPP) offers funding and support to events which have the potential to grow into major annual events in the City of Canterbury Bankstown.  


​The Events Partnership Program (EPP) offers funding and support to events which have the potential to grow into major annual events in the City of Canterbury Bankstown.

These events should be free (or low cost) and accessible, be community driven one day or multi-day events, have broad public appeal, and could feature various forms of entertainment, screenings, performances and stalls. The event should also already attract 3,000+ attendees or (for new events) can attract a minimum of 3,000 attendees in year one.  
The EPP provides match-funding of between $10,000 and $25,000 to events that activate and promote the City and help to create memorable, engaging and innovative experiences for both the local community and visitors.
In addition to financial support, there are further opportunities to leverage Council’s expertise in event planning, marketing and promotion.

To express your interest, please ensure you have read the full Program Guidelines which are linked above. Then, email your two-page proposal to events@cbcity.nsw.gov.au 
Expressions of interest open Monday 22 April and close midnight, Friday 10 May.
