As we approach the mid-year mark of 2023, Glenorchy City Council is looking towards our City’s Christmas celebrations.
Council is excited to once again be offering Christmas Carols Grants to the community. These grants provide a fantastic opportunity for community members to celebrate the festive season, with the option to attend a myriad of varied events across our City.
Applicants can apply for up to $10,000 from Council to help deliver their event. The program is open to businesses, community groups and not-for-profits, with applications opening in July/August. Successful applicants will be announced by the end of September.
Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas says Council is looking forward to receiving this year’s applications.
“In 2022, Council received a large number of funding requests for diverse and creative events, and I have no doubt we will receive a similarly high calibre of applications this year. It was fantastic to support and attend a number of community events last year, from the bigger Carols in the Vale event to the smaller church, primary school and multicultural events” said Mayor Thomas.
“It was hugely encouraging to see the Christmas spirit pull the community together, with Council supporting 6 unique events across our municipality. For me, Christmas is all about togetherness and bringing joy to the people around you. I am so proud Council is once again supporting community members to create these fantastic opportunities for people to gather and be jolly this Christmas”.
Applications will be opening July 1. Keep an eye on Council’s Facebook for more information, or call Council’s Events Officer at 6216 6800.
