Regional event fund set for million-dollar boost

Sunday, 24 January 2021

The South Australian Government has announced an additional $1 million in regional event funding, set to spur new and innovative events and to grow existing events right across the state.
A 50 per cent boost in funding to the Regional Event Fund was announced at Paracombe Wines in the Adelaide Hills - one of the participating venues in the Adelaide Hills’ iconic food and wine celebration, Crush Festival, an event currently funded under the Fund.

The Regional Event Fund covers a range of funding uses such as the engagement of short-term specialised personnel, hire of temporary infrastructure, strategic plan development and marketing costs.
The 2021-22 Regional Event Fund has four categories:
  • Significant Event Funding (from $50,000)
  • Established Event Funding ($20,000 to $50,000)
  • Development Event Funding ($10,000 to $20,000)
  • Emerging Event Funding ($5,000 to $10,000)
The South Australian Tourism Commission, through Events South Australia, has worked with regional event organisers through the pandemic to help get their events back on the calendar and help them navigate how to host COVID-safe events.
