Event applications will open and can be submitted from Wednesday 5 August to Friday 21 August.
To submit an event application you will need to complete an event plan. See the following template and example:

- Event plan template [PDF, 452 KB]
- Event plan example [PDF, 878 KB]
The event plan must be submitted with your online application form(external link). We recommend completing the event plan first, so you have this to refer to when filling out the application form.
Please read the Christchurch Heritage Festival 2020 Application Guidelines [PDF, 688 KB], which includes the terms and conditions, before completing the form.
Please note that as the timeframe for planning this year’s festival is very tight due to COVID-19, we won’t be able to accept any late or incomplete applications. Submitting your event application as early as possible in the submission period would be helpful, and much appreciated by our team.
Community events grant funding
If you’re applying for funding to support your event, please be aware that Christchurch Heritage Festival Community Grants funding is subject to approval from Council on 13 August. Event funding requests submitted with applications prior to this date will be accepted as draft applications. The status of funding will be confirmed following this Council meeting.
Please read the Christchurch Heritage Festival Community Grants Guidelines (draft) [PDF, 517 KB] before applying for funding. The request for funding is part of the online application form.
We look forward to working together with event providers to deliver the Christchurch Heritage Festival 2020.
