Current Sponsorship Opportunities

Lane Cove Festival

Council is currently seeking sponsorship for the 2021 Lane Cove Festival.

Lane Cove Festival celebrates the vibrant and diverse community of Lane Cove. Each September, the Festival presents over 50 events run by local community groups and Council. These events bring thousands of people to Lane Cove attending film screenings, events, exhibitions, live music, workshops and talks.

Lane Cove Festival is a well-established program in the local community’s event calendar and it will provide your business with direct exposure to your consumer base. The flow on effects of sponsorship include the ability to learn about your community, to see new trends emerging and honing current practices giving you the opportunity to provide more personalised service. Your contribution will help maintain the unique community event while encouraging an environment that focuses on promoting local products.
