Event Development Fund

Event Development Fund

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.

Eligible events are those that are new and significant, such as those that can demonstrate district or region wide appeal. Please read the Event Development Fund Guide to ensure your event aligns before applying. Community-based events, or established events, can be supported under the Community Fund and/or Creative Communities Scheme.
