So you're thinking about running an event?
That’s great news. We want to help make your event a success.
Whether it’s a small private event, such as a wedding or family celebration, a community event, like a fun run or a car rally, or a large public event, for example a music festival, garden show or a farming expo, having a plan of action is the key to turning your event ideas into reality.
Events largely fall into one of three categories:
Small private events (involving under 100 people);
Small community events (100-500 people); and
Large public events (1,000 + people).
Depending upon which category your events fall into, there are different rules and regulations that apply. As a general rule, smaller events don’t require a lot of paperwork. Larger events may require council consents, though as long as you allow adequate time to submit your event plans the consenting process isn’t difficult.
