Run The Maine

We love local events!

Lot 19 Creations, the Maldon Heritage Network event and the Castlemaine Rotary Truck Show are some of the local events funded through the latest round of our Event Grants program.

We’ve awarded grants to 18 community groups who will share in $40,000 to deliver events that foster connection and community across the shire.

One of the events that this round of funding will support is Run the Maine. They’ll be hosting their annual community running event that donates proceeds to a local cause.

Another event to receive funding is the Victorian Miniature Railway’s Harcourt Precinct, who will be hosting the grant opening of Harcourt’s very own miniature railway.

Some of the other events include The Castlemaine Show, Maldon Folk Festival and music at the Wesley Hill Market.
