Events and festivals have a crucial role to play in the Marlborough region. This was advocated for by the Grow Marlborough group who have identified the benefits and economic returns events bring to the region. Sports, business, arts and culture and community sectors all organise events and rely on them for funding for both themselves and the broader community.
Marlborough District Council and Grow Marlborough have a strong interest in supporting the event sector and this strategy will promote and encourage events which generate financial and social benefits to Marlborough.
Marlborough hosts quality events, year round, that are interesting and enjoyable for our community and visitors.
Through our events we will attract locals and visitors to regularly play and stay in Marlborough.
Our events will be good for our economy, society and environment. They will showcase what it is to 'live' Marlborough.
