Event Applications 



More images of events at Cottesloe can be viewed here.  To view images from our events from previous years please click here.

Organisers of events held within the Town of Cottesloe must lodge an Event Application Form.

The Town requires an application form for minor (less than 500 people) events to be submitted one calendar month prior to the event; all other event applications must be submitted at least six months prior to the event.

To submit an application, please complete the form and ensure that you have read the Conditions of Use.

Applications are to be returned to town@cottesloe.wa.gov.au and are not confirmed until payment has been received and a conditional approval letter has been issued. Submission of an application form does not automatically imply approval.

At this stage, the Town is currently accepting event applications. Any event approval, if granted, is subject to current COVID restrictions and/or Department of Health guidelines. Please refer here for the latest position statement issued by the Department of Health regarding events and mass gatherings.
