Events

We are a vibrant, diverse community where there is always an interesting activity or event to get along to.

We facilitate and encourage a huge variety of events in the region from food festivals, to children’s school events.

As part of our commitment to being ‘Waste Wise’, Council has developed a policy, which includes guidelines about how to hold a Waste Wise Event. Events are a method of raising public awareness about recycling and showcasing different ways to minimise waste. This policy will ensure that events that are organised and supported by Council and all public events held on Council owned or managed property are committed to waste avoidance and sustainable procurement practices. View and download the policy and guidelines below.

Here we list some of our favourite upcoming events, scroll down to see what’s on.

Please head here for Youth Activities during the School Holidays 

If you feel like something is missing or you have an event to submit, please get in touch.
