Expressions of Interest for Major Events: Now Open

10 June 2016

Yarra City Council is introducing a new approach to supporting and managing events in the City.

The City of Yarra is home to many of Melbourne’s most highly prized parks, gardens and reserves, as well as many of its busy and significant streets and transport paths. These spaces provide unique locations and opportunities for markets, events, community festivals and functions. To help manage these spaces, any event of more than 1000 people, recurring markets or events requiring the road closure of Yarra Boulevard, must apply by submitting an Expression of Interest (EOI).

Our online application form is now live and further information on the policy is also available.

Round One: For events between 1 November 2016 – 31 October 2017

All submissions must be received no later than 5pm, Friday 1 July 2016.

Applicants will be notified of the outcome of their EOI in July 2016.

Upcoming Rounds

Round 1 2017 EOI period will open from January 2 – February 3 2017 for events to be held between June 2017 – May 2018.

Round 2 2017 EOI period will open from June 1 – June 30 2017 for events to be held between November 2017 – October 2018.
