Local event funding applications have opened in Kiama on the NSW south coast with applications for both major and destination events encouraged to apply.
This funding program supports events that attract intra and interstate visitation; appeal to Kiama’s key visitor markets; occur outside of recognised peak periods; and encourage overnight stays and inspire repeat visitation over the longer term.
Previous events funded by the program include Red Hot Summer Tour, KISS Arts Festival and Jamberoo Car Show and Family Fun.
There will only be two Destination Event Funding rounds in the 2023-24 financial year. The first one closes on 22 June 2023 and the second opens in December and closes in January 2024.
