Events help to make our district a great place to live, work and play by bringing our communities together and attracting visitors to Selwyn.

The Council’s event fund can support a wide variety of events and help cover costs such as equipment, venue hire, event promotion, consents, and traffic management to ensure that your event is a success.

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
