Queensland Day is celebrated every year on 6 June – the day Queensland separated from New South Wales, 164 years ago.
Queensland organisations are encouraged to hold an event or initiative in celebration of Queensland Day. Queensland organisations can apply for sponsorship of up to $15,000 to hold an event or initiative between Saturday 1 June and Sunday 9 June 2024.
The 2024 Queensland Day Sponsorship Program is now open for funding applications of up to $15,000 for events and initiatives dedicated to celebrating Queensland’s birthday on 6 June.
Queensland Day is an opportunity for communities to come together and share Queensland’s unique culture and heritage and celebrate everything that is great about being a Queenslander.
Applications for the 2024 Queensland Day Sponsorship Program close 5pm Thursday 31 August 2023. Events can be held between 1 to 9 June 2024.
