Event Funding

Rotorua Lakes Council supports events through both direct and indirect funding.

The criteria for evaluation include alignment with the Rotorua brand, inclusion of families and the local community, seasonality and bringing visitors to the region.

All funding applications are considered for funding on a case-by-case basis.

Contact us with a description of you event to find out how we might be able to help.


Are you organising an event in Rotorua and need volunteers, or perhaps you would like to get involved as a volunteer yourself?

Events & Venues has a large database of volunteers who want to help make events in Rotorua a success. There are individuals with skills and qualifications ranging from first aid to traffic management and there are also groups who want to raise money for their organisation.

Becoming a volunteer at events is a great way of learning new skills and meeting new people.

To find out more about volunteering or to enquire about volunteers for your event, contact our events team.
