The entire Broadwater Parklands will come to life as the home of the 2019 Gold Coast Show from 30 August to 1 September, and this year it remains completely FREE to attend.
Ahh, we love a good show, don’t we Gold Coast? Bright lights, spinning things, sugar comas, the smell of deep fried goodness, more spinning things, having to sit down before you puke, then a bit more sugar to top things off. Oh, and fireworks.
Celebrating 113 years of making memories, this historic Gold Coast event is the very first agricultural show of its kind held on the water and the location change, along with being non-ticketed saw a resurgence of support with an estimated 135,000 people attending last year. Phew!
An exciting enhancement to the Gold Coast Show’s footprint will see the event encompass the entire length of the Broadwater Parklands with the northern end hosting a full Equestrian Program and Dog Show.
The Broadwater Parklands will come alive from the north through to the Sundale Bridge and will include the largest and most spectacular side-show alley ever assembled, woodchopping, baby animal farms, arts and crafts, camel rides on the beach and of course, nightly fireworks.
Two stages will feature live music and there will be so much to enjoy with the Hanlon Brothers headlining Friday night, Saturday features Beatlegs, a Beatles Tribute Show and Sunday is Gold Coast favorites, The Waves.
There is more to the show than ever before and Southport will be reimagined with a breathtaking fireworks display illuminating the city each night.
With all the usuals covered, show-goers might be interested in checking out some of the newer things at this year’s event;
