Community Events Funding

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

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. Our community events funding is available to help community organisations and businesses make these events a reality. 

Visit our Community Event Funding recipients page for examples of previously funded events.
