Organising an event at Albert Park

A wide variety of events are held at Albert Park throughout the year, with the peak period during the summer months. Events range from fun runs, sporting tournaments, international and national level of competition.

Albert Park is on Crown Land, therefore it’s managed under the Crown Land Reserves Act 1978. Under the Act a person must not conduct an organised event unless in accordance with a permit issued by the Committee of Management (Parks Victoria).

To enable Parks Victoria to prepare for the demand on the park an Expression of Interest process is undertaken annually, in line with the financial year, to hold events at Albert Park. The calendar allows Parks Victoria to set down public events, inform stakeholders of scheduled events and associated road closures, thus avoiding potential clashes with tenant activities.


Expression of Interest for the provision of events at Albert Park

Parks Victoria is seeking Expressions of Interest from suitably qualified individuals or organisations who wish to conduct events at Albert Park Reserve.  A range of sporting, cultural and leisure based events proposals are invited, including those which support charitable organisations.

Event proposals will be assessed for inclusion in the 2015/2016 Albert Park Event Calendar.  The assessment will address the need to balance Parks Victoria’s objectives and the values of the event with impacts on the park environment, visitors, staff and stakeholders.
