Festivals and Events Policy Review

This consultation has now concluded. If you have any questions or concerns please email the project team via event@ahc.sa.gov.au.

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback on the draft Festivals and Events Policy, your feedback is being considered and the final version of the Policy will be made available on this project page in the coming months.

Background

Council's Festivals and Events Policy (adopted 2016) is currently under review. A draft version of the updated Policy is now available for public consultation.

Festivals and events are important to the Adelaide Hills and can positively contribute to many parts of the region's fabric of life, including;

  • Building community spirit, increasing local interest and participation, strengthening local values and tradition and encouraging volunteerism
  • Building on and profiling local attractions, products, history, culture and the environment
  • Promoting tourism development and improving destination awareness

A number of areas have been identified where amendments to the policy can improve clarity, increase proactivity and provide further flexibility to take advantage of tourism opportunities. The public are now being invited to offer feedback on the draft Policy, including the following appendices:

  • Competitive Motoring Events
  • Non-Competitive Motoring Events
  • Events Involving Animals
  • Sporting Events

A copy of the current Policy and the draft updated Policy are available in the document library right of this page.
