The Easter bunny won’t be the only one busy this April long weekend - Surfers Paradise is hosting a free, four-day, family-friendly school holiday event bursting with live performances for the annual Australian Street Entertainment Carnival (ASEC).

Proudly presented by Wyndham Destinations Asia Pacific in partnership with Surfers Paradise Alliance, the Australian Street Entertainment Carnival runs from 19-22 April and attracts some of the region's best buskers who will transform Surfers Paradise into a festival of performance, laughter and entertainment.

The carnival will come alive from 11am to 8pm daily throughout the long weekend, with performances taking place on the main stage in Cavill Mall and on the Surfers Paradise beachfront.

Visitors to the precinct can expect to see performers of all ages and of all skill levels with everyone from local street entertainers, professional performers and even industry newcomers invited to pick their position on the streets of Surfers Paradise to prepare to dazzle, amaze and inspire onlookers. 

From the ever-popular dare-devil feats like knife and fire juggling to outrageous acrobatics, energetic dance, amazing music, and mysterious magic acts, there will be plenty of performances to keep the whole family entertained.

With such a vast range of performances on show, the carnival provides the perfect school holiday activity with families invited into the precinct to enjoy a day of laughter in the iconic beachside setting Surfers Paradise provides.
