31 August – 2 September 2018 -
Celebrating its 112th year, the Gold Coast Show will be held at the Broadwater Parklands and Owen Park Southport from August 31 to September 2, 2018, and for the first time ever it will be completely free to attend.
The Broadwater Parklands will come alive from the Southport Aquatic Centre through to the Sundale Bridge including a spectacular side-show alley, woodchopping, baby animal farms, pig racing, arts and crafts, camel rides on the beach, live music, traditional show food, incredible roving entertainment, fireworks and the gigantic Showbag Pavilion.
The Show footprint will also encompass nearby Owen Park and the Southport Pony Club, that will bring back a full Equestrian Program, the cattle and the not-to-be missed Dog Show.
There is more to the show than ever before and Southport will be reimagined with "Luminocity", a breathtaking light festival illuminating the Central Business District each and every night.
