The Gold Coast Eisteddfod

Our Gold Coast Eisteddfod provides 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 and drama - in the friendly, lively spirit of worthy competition.

The competition began in 1982 as part of ‘Tropicarnival’, Gold Coast City’s first ever Festival. It attracted some 600 competitors in the first year and whilst the Festival ceased in 2000, 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.
