$8000 up for grabs for Queensland Week parties

COMMUNITY groups across the state can now apply for financial support for events planned in their towns and cities as part of next year's Queensland Week celebrations.

Premier Campbell Newman urged all Queensland communities to join the state-wide celebration next year.

"Sponsorship funding of up to $8,000 is available for a limited number of events, with successful applicants forming part of the Queensland Government's 2015 Queensland Week celebrations," he said.

"I encourage community groups to make an application for Queensland Week event funding to help us celebrate our state's people, places and achievements."

Mr Newman said Queensland was such a vast and diverse state and this program strives to ensure Queensland Week reaches as many parts of the state as possible.

"This year, the Queensland Government provided funding support to 17 extremely different events state-wide this year as part of the recent Queensland Week celebrations," he said.

"Queenslanders are proud of their state and love to show their maroon pride.

"Whether you choose to celebrate with a festival, barbecue, concert, street parade or a special celebration that is unique to your community, the important thing is that Queenslanders come together and share the fun."
