The City of Kwinana supports a variety of events that contribute to a vibrant community. The City wants events to be successful, but also safe and compliant with all relevant legislations.
Anyone who organises an event has a responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of those who may be affected by the event.
Event organisers are encouraged to contact the City before lodging application forms and relevant documents. The City has produced a Community Events Toolkit, which will guide you through the process of lodging the correct application forms for approval and may answer some of your questions about what needs consideration. These can include venue selection, food safety, fire safety, toilets, insurance, waste management, emergency services, marketing and risk management.
The Community Event Funding Program offers funding to support and enable events that contribute economically, socially, and culturally to our community and enhance the attractiveness and liveability of Kwinana. A variety of events may be eligible for funding, including family fun days, concerts, markets, multicultural celebrations, or any event that brings the community together. For further information see Community Event Fund.
Public events can include festivals, fairs, open days, car boot sales, concerts, fundraisers, street markets, movie nights, shows and performances. Private events encompass birthday parties, family or friend get-togethers and wedding ceremonies. Please read the terms and conditions before completing the relevant booking forms.
Please use the following scenarios to assist you to select the correct forms for submission:
The event application form should be submitted at least 60 days prior to the event (except fireworks permit application, which is required at least 90 days prior to the event). The standard booking form should be submitted at least 10 days prior to the event.
City officers will assess the application and may require completion of other application forms depending on the degree of risk and complexity to public health and safety.
Fees and charges may be applicable and will be quoted upon completed applications.
