This premier event of the Surfers Paradise Festival brings together all the tantalizing food and wine from across the globe, in a relaxed beachside location. Free entry makes this event accessible to everyone.
Traders will man food stalls along the foreshore, with the focus on fresh, fabulous fare to tantalize the taste buds.
For the first time, the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra will provide a free concert to the crowds from 7pm, with vocalists Greg Moore and Kimberly Hodgson. This musical extravaganza will have something for everyone, and the popular show tunes will be a definite crowd pleaser.
This is a free event, so bring along a picnic blanket and plonk the family down on the beach to watch the fireworks at night.
