$3 million grant to support small to medium events in suburban Melbourne

The Victorian Government is backing more events across Melbourne’s suburbs, with a $3 million grant program to attract more visitors to local events, support more jobs and boost local businesses.

The fund will be available to event organisers to deliver small to medium events in local councils across Greater Melbourne, attracting visitors to explore and connect with suburbs across the metropolitan area.  The program provides grants to support suburban events and helps organisers cover the costs associated with event delivery – including venue hire, performer fees, staffing and marketing.
