Destination Events Funding

As part of our Tourism and Events Strategy, Destination Kiama is keen to hear from and work with Destination Events.

Destination Events are those events that attract people to our area, from outside our area. These are events that are located in the Kiama Local Government Area (LGA), attracting significant attendees/participants and that are keen to promote our destination.

Destination Event organisers are invited and encouraged to contact our Event Coordinators with any questions or queries, whether that be in relation to checking the events calendar for date availability, discussing event promotion, packaging, ideas and/or partnerships at or on 02 4232 0444.

Destination Kiama also offers a competitive event funding program.  Our Event Coordinators are available to discuss funding criteria, key dates, the application process or any other questions that may arise.

The opening of each funding round will be advised via our Destination Kiama Newsletter, The Buzz. We welcome you to complete and submit the below application form prior to the closing dates below. Please note, the form will only be available when the funding round is open.

The upcoming closing dates for submissions are as follows:

  • Close of business, Monday 18 July, 2022 (extended due to malfunction with online form)
  • Close of business, Wednesday 26 October, 2022
  • Close of business, Wednesday 29 March, 2023
