Events for Everyone

A diverse events calendar

There's little chance of complaining about being bored when in the South West. Not when you're sipping wine and watching a favourite artist perform live at a Leeuwin Estate concert. Or running, paddling, swimming and biking your way through the Anaconda Adventure Race at Augusta.

The region's calendar of events is filled with an array of popular music festivals, food and wine shows and national sporting contests that make the South West an exciting place to be.

And with such a diverse range of events taking place almost every weekend, there is guaranteed to be something for everyone − whether it's sampling local food and culture at the Harvey Harvest Festival or getting the year off to a rockin' start by attending the annual Southbound music festival.

See our major events page for details on some of the most popular events across the region.

Events funding

The South West Development Commission helps the region's events to shine a little brighter through the South West Community Events Program.

The annual funding scheme provides grants to host events in the South West and to pay for professional coordination of an event.
