Regional Events Scheme funding

APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR 2022-23

What is the Regional Events Scheme

Our Regional Events Scheme (RES) is an annual funding round for smaller and developing regional events across WA.

We support events that:

  • bring more people to the region, which means more tourism dollars for the community
  • attract media coverage which helps promote the region as an exciting destination
  • involve and inspire the local community
  • encourage people to come to the region outside of the typical tourist season
  • add vibrancy and excitement to the region
  • support jobs in regional WA
  • showcase a strong point of difference and/or profile the unique features of the town and/or region.

In the 2021-22 RES, 62 events have been awarded funding, including five through the Regional Aboriginal Events Scheme. Download the list of 2021-22 RES events (PDF 75KB).
