South Australia’s regional events are set to receive $1 million in support as applications for the Regional Event Fund (REF) have been announced.
The 2022-23 Regional Event Fund has four categories:
• Significant Event Funding (from $50,000) – up to three years’ funding for new large-scale signature events that have the potential to be nationally or internationally significant and which
provides substantial visitation, media and profiling opportunities and economic impact for South Australia.
• Established Event Funding ($20,000 – $50,000) – up to three years’ funding for events that can demonstrate a strong track record of growth and a strategy for event innovation.
• Development Funding ($10,000 – $20,000) – up to three years’ funding for events that demonstrate potential for growth and development.
• Emerging Event Funding ($5,000 – $10,000) – up to two years funding for events that are one to three years young, with a focus on smaller community events.
The 2022-23 Regional Event Fund will support events held between 1 September 2022 and 30 August 2023. Applications for Round One opened on Sunday 30 January 2022 and will close at 5pm on Friday 22 April 2022. Round Two will open in August 2022.
Applications for Significant Event Funding will be accepted year-round.
