What's on

The City of Gold Coast's Events Calendar is your guide to festivals and events taking place across the city.

Event organisers

Australian City of Gold Coast (City) plays a large role in supporting events on the Gold Coast. These events benefit our economy and our community, and are an important element in the culture and overall image of our city. We are investing approximately $200 million into new and redeveloped event infrastructure to increase our ability to support major events such as the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth GamesTM – one of the largest multi-sports events in the world.

The City’s events team is a one-stop shop for event organisers, providing logistics, approvals and planning support, and in some cases, financial assistance. We provide support for every kind of event: large and small; sports, cultural and lifestyle; international and local. We can assist you in delivering a high quality event that meets the customers' expectations. We manage the city's events portfolio, attracting and retaining events to optimise the economic benefits to the city.
