Event Management Program
As a considerable amount of planning is required to run an event, Northern Grampians Shire Council has developed an Event Registration Form to help get you started. When completing this form, you will become aware of any Council requirements and submission of this form will enable event details to be added to the events calendar.

Event Assistance Program
The Northern Grampians Shire Council is committed to supporting existing events and to promoting the development of new events in the Shire. Every year Council sets aside a budget allocation for grants to support these events. This funding is allocated on the basis that the event meets the eligibility criteria found in the event assistance guidelines and an application form must be completed and submitted to Council offices.
