Our Mission Statement

The Gold Coast Show is the heart of the Community and enables a sense of belonging for all residents.

As a Not-For-Profit it showcases the variety within the Gold Coast Community by delivering an annual Agricultural Show through Community engagement

The annual three day Gold Coast Show is a community driven celebration of the agricultural history and diverse modern culture of Queensland’s second largest city. The event attracts over 65,000 visitors each year who come to enjoy the mix of city and country competitions, demonstrations and displays, free live entertainment, carnival atmosphere, rides and our famous fireworks.

The Show is generally held around the last week of August/first week of September over a Friday Saturday and Sunday. The Friday is a gazetted public holiday throughout the City and is known as ‘Peoples Day’.

The Gold Coast Show has had several “homes” since it began in 1906 and has been based at its current location at the Gold Coast Turf Club since 2014. (See our History Page……)

The Show is organised by a volunteer Committee of Management elected from community patrons who support the Show via an annual membership subscription with the added expertise of a contracted Show Manager.
Membership is open to ALL Gold Coast residents both young and old along with show supporters from outside the City boundaries.
