While many people think that the Byron Shire is overrun with festivals Richmond Valley Council is encouraging and supporting festivals and events in their area with funding support.

Richmond Valley Council (RVC) area includes many areas that have been severely impacted by the recent fires and includes the key towns of Casino, Evans Head, New Italy, Rappville and Whiporie.

As a regional local government, it is really important we continue to support and reach every corner of the Richmond Valley’s tourism industry, and I encourage festivals and events organisers to apply for this great funding opportunity,’ said RVC general manager Vaughan Macdonald.

The RVC is encouraging people to apply for support for events that they plan to hold between 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021.

Previous recipients of this funding have been the Evans Head Malibu Classic, Casino Truck Show, Evans Head Great Eastern Fly-In, Woodburn Riverside Festival, Northern Rivers Auto Spectacular and many more.

Applications are open until 3 April 2020. For more information and to lodge an application, go to Richmond Valley Council website.

It is recommended that applicants contact the Richmond Valley Council Events Team on 6660 0300 or email [email protected]  to discuss your application prior to submission.
