Events

Council recognises that events are an important part of our community and assist with economic and social benefits.  To assist with navigating events under the current Public Events Framework (PEF), please read below before submitting your event via our online event registration.

PLEASE NOTE:  All public events must be registered with Victorian Government. 

Event organisers must complete the public event self assessment to determine if their event is Tier 1, Tier 2 or Tier 3, complete a COVIDsafe Plan or COVIDsafe Event Checklist as required and submit this to council.

If you are booking a council venue for a public event you still need to register with the Victorian Government Public Events Framework.

Completing a COVIDsafe Plan or COVIDsafe Event Checklist as required by the PEF is the responsibility of the event organiser.  

When completing the public event self assessment please note that your event will not be covered by an existing COVIDSafe Plan held by the council venue.

A public event is an organised public gathering for a common purpose which is conducted on a one-off or periodic basis, open to members of the public, publicly announced or advertised, and may be subject to a specific licence, approvals or permits. A detailed definition of a public event and examples are available at https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/public-events

Our Events Officer can guide you through understanding which Tier your event may sit under and any permits and approvals you may need to host a safe and legally compliant event.
