What is an Event?

An event can generally be described as a “pre-arranged gathering or activity for a common entertainment, leisure or competitive purpose”. Events need to be well planned and managed to ensure that they meet their objectives and fulfil their obligations with regard to all stakeholders and participants. The objectives may include offering the community a range of social, cultural and health benefits, and may also deliver economic benefits by way of encouraging tourist visitation and local spend.

Events range across a diverse spectrum, from sport, entertainment and cultural experiences, to markets and community activities, and can be hosted in a private or public venue or an adapted public space. Events can be commercial ventures, fundraising activities or free events open to the public.

In the City of Busselton, we pride ourselves on offering a year-round diverse and dynamic range of events to suit all ages, demographics and interests.
