The Multicultural NSW Stronger Together Grants Programs aim to support multicultural festivals, events and projects across NSW. We invest in community projects and activities that foster community harmony and celebrate cultural diversity as a precious part of our identity and way of life.

The Local Council Major Festival Grant funding supports Major Festivals delivered by Local Councils located within the Six-Cities Regions. Successful applicants demonstrated how the major festival will build community social cohesion, benefit the local economy and drive tourism for the area.

15 local councils were successful in receiving funding from the NSW Government to host major festivals in 2023 and 2024.

Up to $500,000 per year over 2-years, to a maximum of $1,000,000.

Applications closed at 3pm on Friday 7 October 2022 for major festivals delivered between:

  • 1 January 2023 – 31 December 2023 for year 1

  • 1 January 2024 – 31 December 2024 for year 2
