Festivals and Activations

We promote and cultivate the city as a place that stages and hosts festivals that create great memories and inspire a sense of community belonging and pride.

We support and partner with festival organisers to present festivals that excite visitors and stimulate economic activity. 

We develop strategic partnerships to attract some of Australia’s best festivals to our City.

Our role is to enhance the visitor experience to ensure tourism continues to be vibrant and thriving within our cosmopolitan City. 

We encourage and develop activations that breathe life into spaces across the city creating engaging and welcoming public spaces.
