Host an event in 2020

We are curating next year’s program - come play with us!

How does it work?

  • Fill in a form below.

  • We will then assess your event for inclusion in the 2020 program and email or call you.

  • Individuals, businesses and community groups can run their own events.

  • You can fundraise, raise awareness, have some fun, share your skills or open your business to new people.

  • We’re all about diverse, unique events and rare experiences. Give people something amazing to feel, taste, learn, see or share. Give them Port Fairy like they’ve never known it.

  • Think outside the box! Try something new! Great events create beautiful, lasting memories for locals and visitors alike.

  • Submissions close in December 2019 but dates are filling fast - so jump to it.

What does the Winter Weekends committee do?

  • On top of designing an awesome winter-long program to draw people to town, we organise and run loads of free activities and events to make each weekend vibrant and special - including gigs, the Light Up Port Fairy program and amazing children’s events.

  • We market and promote the festival in local and Melbourne print, radio and social media. We work hard to raise awareness of individual events and the whole festival program.

  • If your event is ticketed, we can manage online bookings/ticketing for you.

  • We can also help with venues, equipment, volunteers and ideas - give us a call to talk more about how we can support your event.
