Community festivals and events are a vital part of community life.
Event organisers wishing to conduct a major event within the City of Campbelltown on Council owned/managed land must submit an application under Section 68 of the Local Government Act 1993, where such an event is not otherwise authorised under a Development Consent. An event application fee(s) may also apply (see Council's Fees and Charges for details).
Council is supportive of the conduct of outdoor events as they contribute significantly to the City's sense of place and community. Our event approval process is aimed at ensuring that events are well organised, can be conducted in a safe, responsible manner, and are an enjoyable and positive experience for the community.
