Ballarat is a progressive regional centre with a responsive council that values strong partnerships and offers streamlined processes that make event life easier.

We seek to attract other events looking to leverage our diverse range of indoor venues and outdoor spaces, developed infrastructure, accommodation options and proximity to major population centres.

Whether it’s a series of graffiti installations dotted about historic city streetscapes, a hive of sporting activity or hands-on experiences in Australia’s oldest regional art gallery, we’re here to make your event in Ballarat a reality and we know what it takes. The blood, sweat and tears; the celebrations; the big picture made up of thousands of small details, and the race to the end to deliver an exceptional experience.

So, let’s make your event happen in Ballarat.


The success of your event is our goal.

We support touring, major one-off and annual tourism events. We assist in the facilitation and funding of right-fit events that strengthen reputation and foster economic prosperity.

Our team offers concierging services to help you navigate the council process and deliver a successful event.
