Important update: As you are aware, the Australian Government has announced a number of safety measures to restrict public gatherings and events to protect the Australian community from the spread of COVID-19.

In view of the current COVID-19 gatherings and social distancing restrictions still in place, and in order to continue safeguarding our community as our top priority, Multicultural Affairs will not be funding 2020-21 Celebrate Together applications for events between 1 July 2020 and 30 September 2020.

Recently, the South Australian Government released its Roadmap for Easing COVID-19 Restrictions. With the further easing of restrictions from 29 June 2020, Multicultural Affairs will be considering how it might support Celebrate Together applications for events held after 1 October 2020, in line with the latest SA Health advice and COVID-19 gatherings and social distancing restrictions.

The Celebrate Together Grants 2020-21 Small Grants (Round 2) are scheduled to open in early August 2020. This second round will be for events between 1 January 2021 and 30 June 2021.

Multicultural Affairs will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated as more information becomes available.


The Celebrate Together Grants provide one-off funding to eligible multicultural organisations to host festivals and events that celebrate cultural diversity.
