Under Destination NSW’s 2018 Flagship Event Fund, the Penrith’s Real Festival held in November 2018 has been granted $20,000 of funding from the NSW government. Destination NSW is the State’s tourism responsible for coordinating major events.

The Penrith’s Real Festival is a flagship event organised by the Penrith Council and attracts over 22,000 visitors annually. The event will be held at the Tench Reserve on the Nepean River. The objective of the grant is to help the free event to attract more visitors to regional NSW.

According to Stuart Ayres, member of the Penrith Council, the funding from Destination NSW helps to drive marketing events to boost tourism in the area. Ayres expressed his delight towards the $20,000 grant towards the festival, which will help to attract more visitors and position regional NSW as a must-go destination for visitors.

According to Adam Marshall, Minister for Tourism and Major Events, the Penrith’s Real Festival is 1 out of the 35 events within regional NSW that will be provided with some form of funding aid as part of the 2018 Flagship Event Fund.

The Penrith’s Real Festival is a fun-filled event with a variety of programs and workshops suitable for the whole family. Apart from updating information on the event website, the organisers may also perform poster printing and flyer distribution to reach out to the general public.
