Looking ahead to create a vibrant calendar of events

Published 9 September 2021
We're planning for when our public spaces can come back to life and looking ahead to the 2022/23 events season.

Event organisers, EOIs are now open to hold your outdoor events with us between 1 July 2022 and 30 June 2023. We are seeking applications from providers with new event ideas along with regular favourites.

We’re looking forward to working with organisers to produce COVID-Safe events that encourage our community and visitors to enjoy time in our beautiful public spaces.

Why hold your event in our City?

Port Phillip is a popular event location and we are renowned for hosting quality events with high levels of participation. Over 750,000 people attended events in the municipality each year pre-COVID-19!

Our combination of natural assets, highly recognisable landmarks, hospitality centres and proximity to the CBD provide a unique opportunity for event producers.
