Gold Coast Eisteddfod provides opportunities and encouragement for young performers – whilst promoting the performing arts in all genres of music, dance and drama.
The Gold Coast Tropicarnival Festival commenced in 1982. One of the many events that took place was the Music, Dance & Drama competition now known as the Gold Coast Eisteddfod. GCE is the only Tropicarnival event still in operation, having seen over one million feet cross the stage from when it commenced to now. It is now the largest competition of its kind in the country, staged from July to September each year.
