Funding and sponsorship opportunities


Major Events, Festivals and Films Sponsorship

Are you organising an event or bringing an event to the City that will have a significant impact on the local economy? Will your event bring a large number of visitors to the city from outside the Local Government Area? If you've answered yes to these two questions, you may be eligible for our Major Events Sponsorship opportunities.

Wagga Wagga City Council (Council) is committed to supporting events within the Wagga Wagga Local Government Area. We recognise the value of events in driving visitation and generating economic benefits as well as showcasing our public spaces and enlivening the city.
