Running Community Events

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.

    Event organiser responsibilities

    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.

    There are several existing documents that may be useful in planning and organising an event. These include but not limited to: -

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.
