Hold an Event

The Fraser Coast has many unique and beautiful locations suitable for holding different types of events and activities. If your event has any of the following elements, various approvals may be required:

  • Food vendors;
  • Serving or selling alcohol;
  • Signage and advertising;
  • Noise;
  • Fireworks;
  • Temporary road/footpath closures;
  • Entertainment activities;
  • Events on Council-controlled land, venues or other infrastructure (including leased areas); or
  • Events requesting Council services such as waste collection and disposal.

To begin the process of applying for an Event Approval please complete an Application for Operation of an Event or Activity form found here.  Please forward the application form to events@frasercoast.qld.gov.au

Once received, Council’s Events Team will be able to provide information on event permits, approvals, and requirements for event preparation, safety and notification to stakeholders. There may also be additional resources and information that will be useful for your event planning.

It is recommended to contact Council at least four (4) months before the planned event date. If you are planning a large-scale event, you should allow at least 12 months to ensure enough time to address all event elements and potential issues.

For further information, please contact Council’s Event Officer on phone: 1300 79 49 29 or alternatively email events@frasercoast.qld.gov.au or please complete an online enquiry below or complete a hard copy enquiry form and return to Council.

Please note that the process for these approvals may involve a number of Council departments, the Queensland Police and other state authorities. Ensure you have allowed enough time to discuss your event with Council's Event Officer before you proceed with planning.
