The idea itself can't be copyrighted. However, the specifics that bring the idea to reality might qualify for copyright protection. For example, advertising layouts or a guidebook on how to conduct the event might be copyrighted. Trademark and trade secret law might also provide protection.

A copyright is for an "artistic expression" like a book, music or artwork. It might possibly be a patent, but there must be something novel, unique and not obvious to get a patent. If you got a patent or copyright then you could charge people for the event by charging admission or making an addition to the ticket price.
