Event Fund Disbursement Policy

Upper Hutt City Council provides an annual Event Fund to support a diverse range of events that contribute to the local economy, enhance the City’s vibrancy, have an environmental conscience, and provide cultural, safe, and accessible experiences that are of value to locals and visitors alike. This focus aligns with Council’s Long Term Plan.

Event organisers may make an application to the annual contestable fund, which is assessed by Council for its alignment to the Events Strategy 2021-2026.(PDF, 795KB)

Events that are assessed to meet the fund criteria will be granted support by Council to aid in the successful delivery of the event and achieve the agreed outcomes.
