Events Sponsorship

The Event Sponsorship Program has been designed to provide funding for events that :
  • Provide positive promotional exposure for Newcastle
  • Provide economic benefit through tourist visitation      
  • Enhance the City’s image and profile as a visitor destination
  • Capitalise on the City’s assets and Newcastle as an event city.

Incorporated associations, not for profit groups and registered associations are invited to apply.  We can't accept applications from individuals or government agencies.
