Plan an Event

A diverse range of festivals, events and activities occur within the City of Yarra.

Council values these activities for the contribution they make towards the diversity, liveability and vitality of the local area.

When planning an event, there are many regulations, permits and approvals that may need to be addressed. Council’s Event Permits team can offer event organisers valuable event planning and management advice to meet these various planning and approval requirements. Event organisers are responsible for making sure they meet all the requirements needed to host an event or associated activity.

This page is intended to provide information about the processes involved in planning an event, festival or other kind of outdoor activity in Yarra. See below.
