Multicultural Festivals and Events program


The Victorian government has created a program that funds community organisations to hold cultural festivals and events. The objectives of this program are to ensure that Victorians can celebrate and preserve cultures and share traditions, and to encourage the broader Victorian community to participate in events to further learn about different cultures and traditions.

Regional Multicultural Festivals and Events Funds will be offering over $1 million in grants, these funds are: Small – up to $5000, Medium – Between $5001 and $15000 and Large – Between $15001 and $50000.

Although round one applications have closed, round two applications will be open in September 2024. For round two applicants, successful recipients must hold events between the 1st of January 2025 and the 30th of June 2025.
