Funding available for destination events

05 November 2020

Round 18 of TEQ's Queensland Destination Events Program (QDEP) is now open for applications from events set to be staged between September 2021 - September 2022. QDEP supports events that generate local economic activity and development in the host destination, attract external visitation, drive social and community outcomes and enhance the appeal of the destination. 

There are two funding options:  
  • Destination event funding – Single year funding for developing events seeking growth ($10,000 - $25,000 per year) .
  • Significant event funding – Single year or up to three years of funding for events that can demonstrate a strong track record of growth or growth potential ($25,000 - $100,000 per year).
The positive economic impact and interest in a community that a successful regional event can provide not only helps to build a sense of local pride but can also foster confidence and strengthen the community as a whole.
