EVENTS Plan an Event

Who doesn't love a great event?

Events bring people, awareness and economic growth to our region.  They reduce seasonal gaps in tourism, bring a sense of pride and joy to communities but most of all, events are fun and everyone needs to have more fun!

Do you have a great idea for an event, festival or market but not sure where to start?

Do you need help promoting and organizing services for your event?

Producing a well managed event involves careful planning and knowledge.  It is important that you speak to council to find out the process for community grant applications, approval processes, permits and support.  Horsham Rural City Council is here to assist you with all of the important and not so fun parts to organizing an event, we have a lot of resources to help you and if we don't, we can point you in the right direction.

  • Step 1: Fill out the Intention to Hold and Event Form

    This form is to let council know about your event.  We need to know all the details.

  • Step 2: Emergency Management Plan Template

    You need to fill this next form out because you just don't know what might happen on the day.  You need to be ready for life's unexpected's.

  • Step 3: Liquor License (Optional)

    Going to have alcohol at your event?  You need a liquor license.
