Gold Coast Eisteddfod
Commencing in 1982, the Eisteddfod has continued to grow – it is now the largest competition of its kind in the country staged in August and September each year, providing opportunities and encouragement for young performers who receive critiques of their skills by highly qualified professionals – whilst promoting the performing arts in all genres of music, dance & drama – in a friendly, lively spirit of worthy competition.
In 2018 we had

• 70 Dance Studios
Competing in Dance Group Dance, Bands, Orchestras and Choral at HOTA Home of the Arts with Solo competitions at other Council venues.
The City of Gold Coast is major sponsor and without this outstanding support, it would not be possible to stage this major cultural activity – the largest in the city.
