Hold an event

Do you want to hold an event in the Manning Valley?

We define an event as an organised activity, held on Council owned or managed recreation reserve, park, foreshore, playing field or beach (including weddings, sporting events and activities); and either:

  • requires Council services eg power, amenities, waste; and / or
  • for more than one hour; and / or
  • attracts an audience of more than 50 people.

If you believe your event meets this definition please complete our Event Application. The application provides all the information required to hold your event.

For information on applying to use our parks for weddings, please visit our Weddings in the Manning Valley page.

You may also apply to promote your event in the lead-up, by installing signage in selected roadside locations.  For information on locations, conditions and to make an application, complete the Community Event Signage application form. For further information on signage, view our policy and guidelines.
