Planning an Event

If you're planning an event in Singleton, here is some information to help you get started.

Each year, Singleton hosts a diverse and vibrant range of events from sporting events, to food and wine festivals, markets, cultural showcases and business events. Singleton Council is a proud supporter of events, and recognises their important role in building social capital, encouraging community participation and enhancing tourism opportunities. Singleton has a wide variety of venues both indoor and outdoor where you can hold events.

Council manages all event applications and enquiries and can provide assistance to event organisers to ensure safe and successful events are held in Singleton.

The Singleton Event Toolkit provides helpful information for event organisers planning and applying to run events on Council managed park, reserves, sportsgrounds, roads, footpaths and public spaces.
