Professional event organisers sought for Mildura’s 2021 New Year’s Eve celebration

Professional event organisers sought for Mildura’s 2021 New Year’s Eve celebration
August 24, 2021

Mildura Rural City Council is calling for professional event organisers interested in running their 2021 New Year’s Eve community celebration. Expressions of interest are open until 1st September for suitably qualified organisers to produce this year’s event at Nowingi Place. Council is offering up to $40,000 to support the successful applicant depending on the programming of the event.

In order to be considered for funding support, the event must be free to attend, family-friendly (smoke, alcohol and drug-free), include a headline act and a recognised children’s act.

Councillor for Recreation and Events Liam Wood said offering the event to external organisations would provide opportunities to take on what is one of the most popular and successful community events of the year.

“This is a valuable and timely opportunity to provide a much-needed boost to the events and entertainment sector, which we know has been among the hardest hit by ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns.

“It offers the chance for a professional event organiser to take over an established, massively successful event that attracts between 4000 and 5000 people each year.

“Offering the event to an external organiser also better aligns with our Events Strategy 2025, which has a focus on Council working in a supporting and facilitating role, allowing event organisers to take on and create events that generate economic benefit for our region.”

Applications can be made using Council’s grants portal at, and must be completed and submitted by 4pm on 1st September.
