You’re invited to kick start summer and celebrate our Gold Coast lifestyle at Celebrate Gold Coast. The theme of the 2016 event is to celebrate 'village life' on the Coast by highlighting the laid-back feel of one of the city's most unique islands – Chevron Island.

To be held on Sunday 9 October from 10am to 4pm, this year’s event will have a vintage feel and a village atmosphere. Australian surf-roots-reggae music group, The Beautiful Girls will headline the event with support acts including Hot Potato Band and local group, Ivey.

Other activities include a circus school, skateboard, BMX and scooter demonstrations, suitcase rummage and ‘crafternoon’ (craft activities). Chevron’s food and beverage outlets will offer cheap eats and street food menus.

Thomas Drive will be closed in the centre of Chevron Island for the event. Traffic will be diverted around the outside roads.

Patrons can ride the G:Link to Surfers Paradise station and cross the Chevron Island bridge.

Limited parking is available on Chevron Island.

Celebrate Gold Coast is proudly supported by 7 NEWS Gold Coast, SEA FM, Blank GC, Bendigo Bank, Gold Coast Waterways Authority and Chevron Island Traders Association.
