Event Sponsorship

The Council believes strongly that quality events are a key factor to realise a vision to make the Coromandel a preferred region to live, work and raise a family. There are three main sources of event sponsorship funding from Council.



Summary of funding opportunities

There are three main sources of Council sponsorship funding for events on the Coromandel:

  1. The Major Events Sponsorship Fund
  2. The Thames Community Board Events Sponsorship Fund
  3. Community Board Community Grants - for events based in Mercury Bay, Tairua/Pauanui, Coromandel/Colville and Whangamata

Applications are invited from event organisers in May and September, with funding decisions made by July/December.
