But first, here are two significant events on the Gold Coast that you must not miss.

2022 Gold Coast Show

August 26 to 28

The Gold Coast Show has a lengthy and illustrious history that dates back to the turn of the 20th century. The Gold Coast Show celebrated its Centenary in 2006 and published a book titled ‘100 Shows –History of the Gold Coast Show' by Fiona Staun.

From August 26 to 28, the Gold Coast Show marks 115 years. The yearly three-day Gold Coast Show is a locally motivated celebration of the agricultural past and varied contemporary culture of Queensland's second-largest city. Over 120,000 people attend the event to participate in urban and rural competitions, demonstrations, displays, free live entertainment, a carnival-like atmosphere, rides, and world-famous fireworks.

The Broadwater Parklands will host the 2022 Gold Coast Show, which will be jam-packed with activities. The Gold Coast Show is devoted to providing three days of outstanding entertainment to those who attend the show in 2022. Bring your entire family and friends, then!

James Blundell will perform at the official opening and stop by the Woodchop Bar as a special guest. Bands, musicians, and performers will fill the Triple M Loud and Live stage.

Of course, there will be all the usual agricultural exhibits, camels, ponies, animal nurseries, and alpacas. Don't miss the Channel 9 Arts and Craft Marquee's exhibition of arts and crafts and the numerous demonstrations available. Please drop by and support the talented children as they display scarecrows and characters from the pot this year.

Additionally, the weekend will feature competitions for arts, equestrian, home crafts, show dogs, and wood chops. Many classes are available for young people interested in the arts, such as graphic design, mixed media, and short films.
