On the eve of Tamworth’s Fiesta La Peel, the NSW Government’s Stronger Together Festival and Event Grants Program has reopened.

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said that Fiesta La Peel was successful in winning a $10,000 grant from the program previously, demonstrating the success of the program in delivering important community events.

“We are fortunate to have a full social calendar of festivals and events that bring the community together and celebrate the diversity that makes our region a great place to live, play and start a family,” Mr Anderson said.

“Events like Fiesta La Peel are so important for our multicultural community which is why I am always keen to be able to partner with the organisers to ensure their success.”

Minister for Multiculturalism Mark Coure said this funding is in addition to the more than $1 million the NSW Government has already invested in cultural events and festivals this year.

“These celebrations bring the colour and vibrancy of cultures across the world to our local communities,” Mr Coure said.

“Most importantly, they serve to break down barriers between people by fostering mutual respect and understanding.”

The Stronger Together Festival and Events Grants provide between $5,000 and $15,000 towards the running of celebrations held between 1 February 2023 and 30 June 2023.

The grants program is currently open. Applications close at 3pm, Friday 28 October, with outcomes announced in early December.
