Plan an Event

Whatever the size of your event, they have common issues including planning, organisation, safety, insurance, disability access, contingency planning and publicity.

Event Planning Guide - Version 6.0
A guide to help event managers and committees plan and manage events successfully and to guide them through the steps they need to take to minimise risk and maximize the likelihood of a well run and successful event. 

Event Planning Workbook
Outdoor public events with an expected attendance of over 500 people held on City of Darebin owned or managed land will have to complete this document prior to permission being given to hold the event.

The Publicity HYPE Handbook
If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to see it, did it really happen? We are all aware that the costs associated with advertising can be prohibitive. Therefore this guide has been designed to focus on ways of generating free publicity and not on paid advertising. 

Access Enabled Events
A guide to help event managers and committees plan and manage successful accessible events and to guide them through the steps they need to take to ensure the event is accessible.

Free Bike Parking Hire for Community Events
We offer free bike parking hire for schools and organisations in Darebin to use at local events. The attractive 'flat raq' bike rack provides parking for up to 10 bikes. It is portable, easily fits into the back of a car and it easy to set up and pack down. It is great for encouraging visitors to ride to your event. Contact our Sustainable Transport Officer on 8470 8683 for details.

Bin Cap Loan
It is important for all events to consider the impact their event will have on the environment. Bin caps are an effective way of ensuring that waste is disposed of in the correct manner.

Advertising Signs in Darebin Parks
Advertising signs play a major role in promoting community events within the City of Darebin. Policies and Guidelines have been established by council to ensure the best result when advertising your event. Community groups and organisations must apply for a temporary permit to display signs in allocated parks across the City of Darebin.
