We use Snare Agent for Windows pretty successfully to forward event
logs, and use syslog-ng as a replacement for the stock syslog in order
to reformat the incoming messages.  Earlier versions had some stability
issues  There's another service we have tested - 'Nagios EventLog'
although it is sending event log messages directly to the Nagios
monitoring tool using the NSCA 'protocol' over TCP.

Someone asked last night about sending Windows event log entries to a
syslog server. Although I haven't done so myself, Tina Bird has pulled
together a bunch of log analysis-related information, including how to
handle Windows events using syslog:
