Community Events Grants

Logan City is known for its vibrancy and community spirit. One of the cornerstones of that spirit is our annual calendar of community-driven events.

The events delivered by the community, are a vital part of the fabric of our city. We value these events and the experiences and opportunities they give our community. We also know groups and individuals often need support to make these events a reality. That’s why our Community Events Funding Program exists.
