Public events

We're helping to keep Victorian events safe. Event organisers need to register their event and submit documentation based on number of attendees and risk factors.

1. Understand the Public Events Framework

Familiarise yourself with the Public Events Framework including definitions, attendee limits, venue requirements and the return of public events phases.

2. Check the public event self-assessment tool

Complete the public event self-assessment tool by answering questions about the number of attendees and public health risk factors. This will determine the  tier classification for your event.

3. Complete the required documents

Depending on the tier of your event, you will need to complete one of the following templates:

Only the above templates will be accepted when you register your event.

4. Register your event

Once you've completed relevant tier documents, register your public event. Remember to attach all the required documents.

  • Tier 1 events must be registered 8-10 weeks before the event start date.
  • Tier 2 events must be registered 4-6 weeks before the event start date.
  • Tier 3 events must be registered 1 week before the event start date.
