Events and festivals funding

We have a rich history of supporting arts, cultural, community, sporting, tourism and special interest events through Hobsons Bay City Council's Make It Happen grants program. 

In 2022, 13 events received support, including the Laverton Festival, Diwali Festival, Monster Mayhem in the Meadows, Williamstown Literary Festival and the Pier Festival.
