Regional Event Fund grants available

Are you planning an event in our Mount Lofty Ranges or Limestone Coast forests during 2021-22?

You may be eligible for grant funding, as part of a new SA Government initiative to support regional events, visitation and spending.

The Regional Event Fund is offering grants from $5,000 – $50,000, to strengthen the state’s regional events calendar and drive economic stimulus beyond the traditionally peak summer tourism period.
