Promoting your event
Events can bring hundreds or even thousands of visitors to the city, injecting money into our local economy and making Wagga Wagga a great place to live, work, invest and play.
Wagga Wagga City Council supports events by producing a calendar of events for the local government area. If you're holding an event, we want to hear about it! You can submit details on any significant event you are staging which would be of interest to local residents and visitors.
Below are details on the ways we promote events registered with us. Please note: Inclusion in the promotions listed below may be subject to space restrictions and whether the event is relevant to the audience for a particular promotional medium.
Once approved by The Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW), all events on our online calendar are included on visitwagga.com and visitnsw.com. The Wagga Wagga City Council and Wagga Events websites also both link to this online calendar.

A quarterly publication, the printed What's On is released seasonally. The guide is printed and distributed within the city and wider region.
