Commercial Events Fund

Round two of the Council’s Commercial Events Fund 2019/2020 is now open.

This Fund was established to help create economic benefit to Marlborough by attracting new events and helping to build on existing ones. Currently there is up to $125,000 available for allocation per year.

To be eligible, commercial events must be held within the Marlborough district boundaries. Community events, conferences, conventions, trade shows and exhibitions are not eligible. Funding is granted on an annual basis but

it does not mean that all funds must be distributed each year. Past applicants who have been unsuccessful may re-apply.

Applications to the Commercial Events Fund 2019/20 close at 5.00 pm on Monday 9 March 2020. A funding decision will be made by Friday 24 April 2020.
