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).
