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 tens of thousands of domestic and international visitors to our region,” he said.

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

The call for the 2018 charity partner comes on the back of this year’s successful two week festival.

“This year more than 34,000 people passed through the gates of Corbett Gardens across the 13 day festival.” 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 2018 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 Lorna Bussell –  Destination Southern Highlands Tulip Time Officer on phone 02 4871 2888.

This year’s Charity Partner Redkite, our sponsors, supporters and suppliers will be recognised for their efforts at a morning tea being held at the Southern Highlands Welcome Centre on Friday 10 November 2017.
