ORGANISERS of events held between 1 July 2019 and 30 June 2020 can now apply for Richmond Valley Council funding aimed at driving visitor numbers and showcasing the authentic and beautiful Richmond Valley.
Applications for the Richmond Valley Event Funding Scheme are now open to support more grassroots events and local economies.
Council’s General Manager Vaughan Macdonald is urging event organisers to apply.
“As a regional local government, it is really important we continue to support and reach every corner of the Richmond Valley’s tourism industry, and I encourage festivals and events to apply for this great funding opportunity which is now available,” Mr Macdonald said.
The 2019/20 Event Funding Scheme is developed to support and encourage events and will offer successful applications both cash and in-kind support.
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, Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular and many more.
Applications are open until 28 February 2019. For more information and to lodge an application, go to www.richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au.
It is recommended that applicants contact the Richmond Valley Council Events Team on 6660 0300 or email Council to discuss your application prior to submission.
