Tulip Time 2016

Wingecarribee Shire Council is seeking Expressions of Interest from charities wishing to become the official charity partner for next year’s Tulip Time celebrations.

Council’s Manager Tourism and Events, Steve Rosa is encouraging all eligible charities to lodge an application.

“Tulip Time is our largest annual event bringing in tens of thousands of visitors from across the country to our Shire,” he said.

“There’s no doubt that being involved in the festival brings an enormous profile to our partners.”

The call for the 2017 charity partner comes on the back of this year’s hugely successful two week celebrations.

“This year almost 40,000 people flocked through the gates of Corbett Gardens across the 13 day festival, smashing the previous record of 38,000 set last year,” said Mr Rosa.

“We’re confident that we can build on this year’s event with next year’s successful charity partner playing an integral role in our 2017 planning and promotions,” Mr Rosa added.

Apart from promotional opportunities and brand exposure, the successful charity partner will also be able to develop and manage a strong base of events and activities during the annual springtime festival.

Potential charity partners must meet certain criteria including being Australian based, be registered with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and be able to be actively involved in the two week celebrations.

For further information, including a full list of eligibility criteria, visit or contact Steve Rosa – Council’s Manager Tourism and Events on phone (02) 4871 2888.
