Community events to flourish in Parramatta with funding boost

A number of new and exciting public events are set to pop up in the City of Parramatta as Council relaunches its Community Events Grants Program.

Community groups and not-for-profits are invited to apply for a share of up to $70,000 in funding to run low-cost or free events that will help revitalise the City and attract visitors.

The Community Events Grants program was not offered in 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions.

“I am delighted that we can welcome back the diverse range of events that our great City is renowned for, after a year of tough COVID-19 restrictions,” City of Parramatta Lord Mayor Cr Bob Dwyer said.

“Through our Community Events Grants Program, we hope to provide residents and visitors with more opportunities to connect and celebrate while also supporting our City’s recovery from the pandemic.”

The grants program aims to establish and encourage new events which provide social, recreational and cultural benefits to people across the Parramatta Local Government Area.
