Event Strategy:

The Think Penrith Think Events – Penrith Events Strategy 2020-2024 sets robust foundations to enable Penrith to grow and shine as a host of major and iconic regional events and supporter of community events. While Penrith attracts and many events each year, Penrith City Council recognises there are opportunities to achieve greater economic and social outcomes.

The Strategy provides a transparent framework to guide the Council in decision making on the events to attract, produce, promote, approve and fund. These decisions will be based on a clear set of objectives and criteria that will assist the Council to build a balanced and sustainable events portfolio that will grow the visitor economy and enhance the liveability of Penrith.

Event Prospectus:

Penrith is home to world-class sporting venues, several large stadiums, a performing arts centre and facilities for functions, meetings and conferences.

Penrith also has plenty of outdoor space to cater for large and small events. There are more than 1,200 hectares of open space in Penrith which includes parks, sporting fields and reserves. Many of these parks and reserves are located on the banks of the Nepean River and their picturesque outlook is enhanced by the backdrop of the Blue Mountains. Most of these areas are also equipped with accessible toilet facilities, making them the perfect place for busy outdoor events such as markets and festivals.
