Council gives grants to four Peninsula festivals

Central Coast Council will contribute to the cost of four Peninsula festivals under its "Community Events and Place Activation Grant Program".

They are the Woytopia Festival run by the Peninsula Environment Group, the Coastal Twist Festival run by the Naughty Noodle Fun Haus, the Bay-to-Bay Running Festival organised by the Terrigal Trotters and the Words on the Waves writers' festival.

The Woytopia Festival was described in the council assessment as a one-day, family-orientated community and sustainable living festival in its eighth year.

It will receive $9922.31 for artists and sound production and event services.

The Coastal Twist Arts and Culture Festival was described as having 11 events across six days for all ages, sharing the vision for a more visibly-inclusive, social-equitable Central Coast.

It will received $20,000 for various Council services, artist and sound production costs and event marketing and promotion.

The Bay-to-Bay Running Festival was described as an annual event between Woy Woy and Gosford that incorporates a range of events for runners of all ages and abilities including a half marathon, and 12, five and two kilometre options.

It will receive $10,130.00 for various council fees and services.

Each of the three festivals was described as a "popular, long standing and large-scale local community event".

"Community benefit is demonstrated, and all required information is provided."

The Words on Waves Writers' Festival was described as offering author panels, literacy conversations, book signings and writers' workshops.

It was also described as having a "good event concept with a growing audience".

It will receive $10,000 for venue and event production costs.

In all cases, the grants were "conditional on all relevant event approvals (including COVID-19 related) being provided prior to the release of funds".

One application from Umbala Events Pty Ltd for its monthly markets at Woy Woy and Umina Beach was unsuccessful.

It was described as "supporting local small business and creating community spirit", but the "application intent does not meet the objectives of this grant program".

The program was "designed to support the community to deliver community events and activities that activate spaces and places to complement activity around town centres, foreshores, lakes and open spaces for families, community and visitors", said council administrator Mr Rik Hart.

"I'm pleased this funding will support these organisations to deliver a range of exciting, meaningful and fun events and programs for the local community and to activate our region," he said.
