The Whangārei Event Development Fund supports new, diverse and innovative events for the District, which have the potential to be self-sustaining without Council funding in future years.
Due to high demand of funding requests, the Event Development Fund is closed.
Eligible events are those that are new and significant, such as those that can demonstrate district or region wide appeal.
Applications will re-open April 2024 for any events that fit the Event Development Fund priority’s and are happening in our District between 1 July 2024 to 30 June 2025.
Please read the Event Development Fund Guide to ensure your event aligns before applying.
Closing date: currently closed due to high demand
Community-based events, or established events, can be supported under the Community Fund and / or Creative Communities Scheme.
