Successful applicants funded in Round 1 of the $4 million grants scheme are already adding vibrancy to the city centre and surrounds, with Round 2 attracting 72 applicants.

The Perth CBD and Northbridge will further come alive during a bumper summer events season with successful Round 2 applicants including:

  • food, wine and heritage festivals
  • art installations and performing arts events
  • sporting and youth festivals.

The State Government's investment is part of a $12 million package aimed at increasing foot traffic in the Perth CBD and Northbridge, with the intention of making the city more connected, active, and an attractive place to live, work, visit or play. 

Applications are assessed against criteria of economic impact, activation, and capability to deliver.

The third and final round of applications will be open from 1 February to 1 March, for events to be held by 30 June 2023.
