Events in Bass Coast

We provide support for many events throughout the year. Most events are held in the peak tourist season to take advantage of the significant number of visitors to the region. Council's Events Policy sets the framework for events in Bass Coast.

The Bass Coast Shire Council Economic Development Strategy 2016-2021 (1.8MB) supports the promotion of Bass Coast as an all round tourist and events destination.

Before organising your event you need to establish whether you need an Event Permit. For assistance in planning and running your event contact Council's Events Team on 1300 BCOAST (226 278), 03 5671 2211 or

Council's Calendar of Events is a great way to promote your event. Complete the required form at Register your Event.

Social and Economic Value of Events

The Social and Economic Value of Events report (PDF 777kb) details expenditure on events by Council and examines the social and economic benefits of these events to the community and local economy. The report was undertaken by consulting firm, Urban Enterprise, and was partially funded by Regional Development Victoria. This report provided valuable information to help develop the Events Policy.

For more information please contact our Manager Economic Development and Tourism, Peter Francis, on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or 03 5671 2211.
