Event Calendar

Below is the most current Event Calendar for the period between May and September 2022.

Please note: Events included on the events calendar have not necessarily been approved in line with current regulatory requirements. The calendar is an advisory tool only. Contact the relevant local government for more information about specific events.

Event Calendar

All public and private events with more than 500 patrons should be registered with the Department of Health before proceeding. Event registrations are used to generate the Event Calendar. We use the information to:

  1. Create an events calendar. The calendar helps inform the public, event organisers, police and government agencies on what events will be occurring in their area
  2. Liaise with event organisers and other stakeholders to ensure WA events run smoothly, and are safe, enjoyable, and of a high quality and
  3. Advise hospitals and other health and emergency services to ensure a coordinated, comprehensive response when high risk, multiple or concurrent events are expected in a location which would otherwise have the potential to impact on local services.

The calendar is updated weekly to ensure hospitals, and other health and emergency services can roster staff appropriately during times of greater demand. The most up-to-date calendar is available at the above link.

While we make every attempt to ensure all emergency services are kept up to date, we cannot guarantee that the recipients share the calendar internally, particularly with regional offices; therefore we ask that organisers continue to notify local emergency services of their upcoming events in order to meet the obligations under the Guidelines for Concerts, Events and Organised Gatherings (PDF 110KB).

Your help is needed to make sure the calendar is as up-to-date as possible.
