MidCoast to open sponsorship grant program for events and festivals


The MidCoast Council’s sponsorship program for events and festivals will open on March 1 across three categories of funding.

Applicants can apply for up to $2,500 in the Community and Local Events category (events held between 1 July 2023 – 30 June 2024) or up to $10,000 in the Events and Festivals category (events held between 1 July – 31 December 2023).

Funding is also available in the Regionally Significant category for events that showcase the MidCoast on a much larger scale and would be difficult to replicate elsewhere.

“We welcome event organisers to apply for funding to get their event off the ground and help put the MidCoast region on the map,” said Deb Tuckerman, MidCoast Council’s manager of growth, economic development and tourism.

“From art shows and music festivals, to sporting events, food, fashion and everything in between, our events celebrate all the MidCoast has to offer.”
