food festival picEvent organisers across rural and regional NSW holding events between January and June 2019, are encouraged to apply for the NSW Government's Flagship Event Fund, which has now opened.

Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said the 2019 Fund would, for the first time, be offered in two rounds per year and be simplified with a single step application process. This change has been made to reduce the red tape to give event organisers easy access to a more streamlined application process, making it quicker for events in rural and regional areas to access vital funds and boost tourism in their local communities.

Events can apply for an annual grant of $20,000 or a triennial grant of $27,500 to help market and promote their event to visitors outside of their local area.

Applications for Round One of the 2019 Flagship Event Fund close on Monday 8 October 2018. To lodge an application, visit

Round Two applications for events held between July and December 2019 will open in February next year.
