Events and festivals

Brisbane's great festivals and events bring together and celebrate local cultures and enhance our reputation as a vibrant and creative city. If you are planning an event, you may need an Entertainment Event Permit. There are also related event approvals that may be required for both small and large events. Find out Council's requirements for event preparation, safety and notification to stakeholders and access useful event planning resources.
