Event permit fees

Event permit

If you would like to hold a festival or event in Moreland, you may need an event permit.

If your event does not require a permit we do ask that you register your event with the Cultural Events Officer to avoid conflicting with other events or site maintenance.

Event permit fees

Permit fees cover the costs associated with the preparation of the site for groups to host events. This includes the cleaning and stocking of toilets, preparation of the grounds, including marking irrigation systems and other associated costs.
