Monash Festival Guidelines

Festivals and celebratory events are an important part of community life. They can create a sense of pride and belonging in a geographical area or within a community, showcase the talents and cultures of that community to a wider audience and bring people of many different backgrounds together in celebration. Council presented and supported festivals express the character, attributes and aspirations of the people of Monash.

Performers applying to Council are required to submit examples of their work, similar to what they could perform at the event.

Upon receipt of an application from a performer, Council reserves the right to seek information concerning a performer. It also reserves the right to refuse an application, if a performer does not provide the information sought by Council (see above) or, in its absolute discretion, it deems the proposed performer to be inconsistent with one or more desired event outcomes. 

Submitting an application does not guarantee that Council will grant the application.


Desired Outcomes

In general Council deems community festivals and events to achieve the following broad outcomes:

  • Provide appropriate entertainment and activities to enrich the cultural life of the Monash community
  • Provide opportunities for local community groups to provide information about local community services and activities that are directly of benefit to the local community
  • Seek feedback from residents concerning Council services
  • Promote Council services.
  • Provide opportunities for State and Federal government departments to disseminate information about their relevant community services.
