Funding available for events in the Richmond Valley

RICHMOND Valley Council’s Event Funding Scheme is now open to enable organisers an opportunity to start planning their COVID-safe events.

Funding is available for events to be held between 1 July 2021 and 30 June 2022. The Scheme’s aims are to fund meaningful, creative and high-quality events for our community and visitors. Both cash and in-kind support are offered to organisers of existing and emerging events.

Funding is prioritised for events and festivals which:

  • celebrate the Richmond Valley’s unique culture and identity
  • assist in building diverse and economically-strong communities
  • are attractive to visitors
  • are engaging, surprising and entertaining

Richmond Valley Council has a rich history of supporting sporting, arts, cultural, community and special interest events. Some of the previous recipients of this funding have been the Evans Head Malibu Classic, Casino Truck Show, Evans Head Great Eastern Fly-In, Woodburn Riverside Festival, and the Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular, to name a few.

Applications are open until 4pm, Friday 19 March. For more information and to lodge an application go to
