After an incredibly successful move to Southport’s Broadwater Parklands in 2018 and 2019, the 2020 Gold Coast Show plans were halted, along with all other major events, due to COVID. The Gold Coast Show Management Committee has been working hard on the development of plans for the 2021 Agricultural Show and excitedly announce that CMC Hall of Fame inductee, Country Music Icon James Blundell will be the Ambassador in 2021, taking the event back to the grassroots and bringing Sun, Surf and Country together.

The Gold Coast show has something for everyone. For kids, there are plenty of rides, including a Ferris Wheel & giant swing, carnival games, showbags, animal interaction, face painting, competitions and art shows. For adults, there are plenty of exhibitions and displays of art, science, history, education, culture, innovation and creativity. There are also motor cross displays, animal judging competitions as well as live music and dance shows.

Visitors to the show can also discover the country culture of Australia by visiting the various stalls and purchase some local arts and crafts. There are also art & cooking demonstrations where visitors can learn a new skill.

As of 2018, The Gold Coast Show has moved venues and is located at the Broadwater Parklands, and the best part is admittance is now free! Equestrian is brought back to the program, as well as spectacular nightly entertainment.
