Are you planning an event in the Lismore area?

We are committed to assisting you to prepare and plan a successful event and we also have funding available for major events.

Individuals or organisations intending to host or organise a festival or event on a public street, footpath, open space or property owned and/or maintained by Council must complete an Events Application.

The Events Guide contains useful information for event organisers and outlines compliance issues in relation to hosting an event.

This A-Z information guide, in conjunction with the Events Application, will assist you to meet all statutory and legislative requirements involved in organising your event, while protecting the surrounding area and ensuring public safety.

Proposals for large-scale events or events on private land should be directed to the Duty Planner in the first instance as a development application may be required. Phone us on (02) 6625 0500.
