Everyone’s beloved Gold Coast Show Mascot, Jolly The Clown, was launched in a rocket to the Stars so he can spread the word to the Universe about the amazing talent and evolving culture of the Gold Coast.

Gold Coast Show Youth Ambassador, Savannah Tindiglia said the Gold Coast’s largest community event is celebrating 111 years of family fun on the September 1, 2 & 3 2017 at the Gold Coast Turf Club and Showground.

“As well as launching Jolly The Clown to the Stars to discover new things and spread the word about the youth of the Gold Coast’s star quality to the Galaxy, we are also excited to be launching the 2017 Under 20’s Arts and Crafts Schedule, taking expressions of interest from entertainers and inviting the community to once again get involved with the new program, said Savannah.”

“My peers and I want to know what the Gold Coast is going to be like in 20 years, it’s all about the next generation coming through and what legacy is going to be left for us, especially after the 2018 Commonwealth Games.”

Show Manager, Lavinia Rampino said we are thrilled to be partnering with the Gold Coast’s first Spaceflight Academy at Gilmour Space Technologies.

“There are so many new industries that are presenting themselves and the Gold Coast has become a place of creativity, science-fiction and robotics. A place where movies come to life, dreams come true and real stars are born! Who would have thought the Gold Coast even had a Spaceflight Academy?!”

“We can’t wait to see where our entrants who are up-and-coming-artists, leaders, homemakers and entertainers are heading in the future.

“At this year’s Show patrons will get the chance to take a peek into the future and let their imaginations take flight, in addition, it will be a place of endless possibilities that will incorporate the To The Stars theme, showcasing the extraordinary and the limitless talent this diverse city has to offer.”
