The Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) is making it easier to apply for a Major Event Liquor Licence with our new online form.
Victoria is world-renown for hosting some of the best sporting, cultural and food events in the world and the major events licensing team at the VCGLR process around 1000 major event liquor licences every year to support these.
Major event organisers and licensees can now lodge their Major Event Liquor Licence Application online, see: Major Event Application
The new online form is intuitive based on responses provided and replaces the current interactive PDF application form that event organisers have previously emailed to us. The new online form allows applicants to lodge and pay for their application quickly and easily and automatically provides them with a copy of the application for their records.
Major event organisers with multiple applicants can continue to use our interactive PDF form to coordinate and lodge applications on behalf of individual event participants. To have the form sent to you, please contact our Licensing Division.
Before lodging an application, event organisers should contact our Licensing Division to discuss their proposed event via our website, see: Contact us
