Events funding available

Current location in the site

Applications to Selwyn District Council’s Round 2 Events Fund are now open.

After Round 1 earlier in the year, there is now around $21,000 available in the fund to support events held in Selwyn and open to the public. This round of funding is for events taking place between 1 January–30 June 2018. It can assist with costs like equipment and venue hire, promotions, consent, and traffic management to ensure your event is a success.

The fund was established in 2013 and has supported a range of events including the NZ Ploughing Association Championship, Darfield Artweek, Koru Games – South Island year 7 and 8 sporting tournament, Rolleston Community Fireworks and Waitangi Day Community Country Picnic.

To be eligible for a grant, events need to:

  • attract local, regional and/or international visitors
  • contribute to the key benefits identified in the Council's Event Funding Policy and Guidelines
  • increase the range and diversity of events in Selwyn
  • promote the Selwyn district

Events should preferably be run by a not-for-profit organisation with charitable status, although applications from community organisations and individuals may be accepted.

Applications for funding of events must be received by 5pm, Tuesday 31 October. Application forms and information about the fund is available online at
