Why register your event with NGSC?

Promotion: Your event can be promoted across the shire via our events calendar on this website, posters displayed in Shop 108, and may appear in Council's quarterly ads in the North Central News and Weekly Advertiser.

Safe: When you fill out an event registration form we will send this to all departments within Council, including Planning, Building, Health, Infrastructure and Waste. This ensures every department is aware of what is happening and that you have the correct permits and permission to run your event. 

Support: During the planning process, we are here to assist you and provide guidance to make your event a success. If you are looking for advice, we are here to have a chat on the phone or meet up in person.

Northern Grampians Shire Council aims to promote, attract and support festivals, events and attractions that add value to the shire's economy (NGSC Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan 2017-2021)

Northern Grampians provides the perfect backdrop for many events throughout the year. Our major events of the Stawell Easter Gift and Grampians Grape Escape draw large crowds from across the country and simply are not to be missed.

With an increasing number of community events, council is keen to play an active role in supporting these events to also become major attractions. We are here to support you in your event planning process and in promoting your event to help you reach a larger audience.

Registration

The Northern Grampians Shire Council Event Application Resources booklet provides all the information you need to know to run an event in our shire. The Event Resources Guide includes all the forms that may be required during your event planning. Regardless of what type of event you are organising, council requires an Event Registration Form describing the details of your event. Notifying council will ensure that we can assist you to run a safe and successful event.
