Destination Event Attraction Program


Applications for Council’s 2022-2023 Destination Event Attraction Program (DEAP) have now closed.

The DEAP is Council’s most significant grant program designed specifically to support the attraction of events which position and build Frankston’s reputation as a creative events destination.

Via the program, applicants are invited to specify the type and amount of support (both cash and in-kind contributions are available) to create, relocate or host their event in Frankston City.

If you would like to be notified when the next funding round opens (for events taking place in the 2023-2024 financial year) please email your details to

Alternatively if you would like to bring your event to Frankston sooner, please review Council’s  Event Applications and Information or contact the Events team via email; to discuss your options.

Events are a Frankston speciality – they elevate and add vibrancy to our city’s experiences while celebrating the city’s unique positioning and lifestyle. We look forward to announcing our revitalised event calendar soon.
