Regional Events Scheme funding


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).
