Since 2010, The Community Foundation has sponsored many new and local events that have been held in Mirboo North and the surrounding district. 

We have supported an engaging array of events such as the Mirboo North Art Show, Mirboo North Italian Festa, Thorpdale Potato Festival, Yinnar Fiddlehead Festival and Boolarra Folk Festival, Choo Choo Market and JobSkills Expo.

Sponsorship for New Events

We find there are many benefits to sponsoring these events such as:

  • Showing support for new and steadfast events that aim to bring new visitors and positively impacts economics in the area.
  • Creating opportunities for skill sharing and collaboration between local people.
  • Building awareness of the Community Foundation.

If you are setting up a new event in our district, it is possible to apply for sponsorship on a case-by-case basis to assist with organisation, and operational costs associated with the event. By offering sponsorship we believe we are supporting strategic development of events, which can be drivers of tourism for our local district.

If you would like to apply for sponsorship for a brand new event in our district, please contact the Community Foundation to discuss.
