Destination Event Attraction Program


Applications are now CLOSED for Round 1 of the 2023/24 round of Frankston City Council’s event partnership funding – the Destination Event Attraction Program (DEAP).

A creative city, Frankston is an ideal location for audiences seeking unique and memorable experiences at any time of year. 

The City’s accessibility from Melbourne and the surrounding south-eastern suburbs, coupled with its diverse cultural and natural assets make it an outstanding location for destination events.  

The DEAP provides financial and in-kind support to organisations to deliver high quality festivals and events that provide remarkable visitor experiences, local engagement and build upon the City’s positioning as a Creative Destination. 

Council invites applicants to specify the investment they seek to create, relocate or host their event in Frankston City, including cash and in-kind contributions. 

If your event falls outside of the application dates, but you still wish to hold it in Frankston City, please email 

To stage your event without financial support from Council, please apply for an event permit, more information can be found here
