CBD Sundown event to light up Southport after dark

Roving roller girls, nostalgic disco tunes, vintage arcade games, iconic Drag Queens and more will take over an empty lot in Southport this Friday night.

CBD Sundown is a brand new event series coming to the suburb, with Gold Coasters encouraged to come along and enjoy all the free fun on offer.

This week’s event is set to take place in Regent Lane from 6pm to 9pm.


Mayor Tom Tate said the live music and art fiesta would entice locals to visit and support businesses in the area.

“Come down and rediscover Southport CBD after dark,” said Mayor Tate.

“This new event series will see activations in the CBD’s live music venues and forgotten spaces where patrons can check out creative pop-ups while sampling local food and bars.

“Wander down the laneway and immerse yourself in the art installations or try your hand at a free paint and sip session under the stars.

“Once 9pm rolls round, event goers can check out the nearby CBD bars and venues,” he said.

CBD Sundown is an ongoing program that will see increased activations in the CBD the last Friday of each month until June 2022.
