Support for Regional Events
Regional communities and businesses are set to benefit from the latest round of events supported by the Victorian Government’s $20 million Regional Events Fund.
With events supported in Daylesford, Winton, Mornington and Morwell, visitors will be enticed to visit many corners of the state to enjoy a range of cultural events in a regional setting.
The latest round of the Regional Events Fund has supported:
- ChillOut Festival – Australia’s largest LGBTIQ regional festival is a significant driver of tourism in the Daylesford and Macedon region. This celebration of love, equality and creativity will run from 5-9 March 2020.
- Winton SuperSprint - Winton will continue a four-decade Supercars tradition when it hosts 2020 Winton SuperSprint from 5-7 June.
- The Vine Burn – At the heart of this new winter arts festival scheduled for 27 June 2020 at Mornington Racecourse will be a sculpture/bonfire constructed from vines sourced from peninsula wineries.
- Morwell International Rose Garden Festival – The festival featuring workshops, music, stalls and children’s activities will expand both its footprint and duration, moving to a weekend event on 16-17 November 2019.
From Australia’s largest LGBTIQ regional festival in Daylesford to rose gardens in Morwell, regional Victoria’s calendar of events has something for everyone, attracting thousands of visitors to towns big and small each week.
The Regional Events Fund is helping regional towns across Victoria secure strong calendars of events which attract new visitors to the region and provide compelling attractions for community members.
