City of Canterbury Bankstown launches generous grants for “parties” on the street

It takes a festival to bring the community together

Up to $25,000 in grants is now available for Canterbury-Bankstown community groups to hold fete-style festivals with performances, food and gift stalls and a variety of entertainment.

Applications for the Village Festival Grant Funding Program are now open to community groups who wish to host free events in their local town or village business centre.

This is a second attempt to set the grants program in motion after Covid interrupted initial proceedings last year. But now it’s business as usual and time to get excited, as the program is now accepting applications.

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Khal Asfour said the program is a fantastic opportunity for groups with unique ideas for events that will breathe fresh life into business centres – attracting locals as well as visitors from across the state.

“It’s time for a street party in our suburbs!” Mayor Asfour said.

“Our small village centres, from Belmore to Bass Hill, have great character and community and it’s time we had a party close to you.”

“We’re looking for organised and committed groups who want to deliver for the community, and Council will provide a dollar for dollar contribution up to $25,000 to make your event a reality.

“We want people to be proud of their suburb and bring people into our local mum and dad shops as well. I’m looking forward to see community ideas come to life.”


Applications are open until 11.59pm Sunday 29 May 2022.
