Tourism Event Attraction Grants

$12,000

Open: 9am, Tuesday 14 July
Applications close: 10am, Thursday 3 September

The Tourism Event Attraction Program has been designed to attract events that drive economic returns outside of the event and give both visitors and residents year-round reasons to seek out and experience our City’s urban bayside location.

Two grants have been made available through the program, to support event management companies wishing to create or relocate their tourism event to Frankston.

To date, the program has supported the delivery of 20 events over four years. These events have attracted over 200,000 people and have contributed an additional $35.157 million into the local economy.
