Commercial Events Fund open now

This Fund was established to help create economic benefit to Marlborough by attracting new events and helping to build on existing ones. Council’s Commercial Events Fund Sub-committee considers the applications and currently there is up to $130,000 per annum available for allocation.

To be eligible, commercial events must be held within the Marlborough District Council 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.

Key dates:

  • Applications close: 5.00 pm on Monday 15 March 2021
  • Funding decision by: Friday 9 April 2021

Applications must be completed online via Council’s website.

Any enquiries can be directed to Council’s Regional Events Advisor, Samantha Young
