Where is it: Focused on the Gold Coast, but events are also on in Brisbane, Cairns and Townsville!
What's it all about: 12 days of free cultural events running in conjunction with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games!
Tell me more: The Commonwealth Games is a huge sporting event involving the best athletes from across the Commonwealth, and in 2018 it's on here in Queensland at the Gold Coast. And while that's fantastic news for sports-lovers, arts and cultural events are not being ignored! Festival 2018 runs for the duration of the Games and there are some fantastic events on! We were lucky enough to catch a number of different events like 'Arboria - Architects of Air", an amazing inflatable maze of lights and colour, "360 All Stars" and their incredible tricks and stunts, the wonderful indigenous dancing storytellers "Our Corka Bubs" as well as some fantastic theater and craft! And that was just scratching the surface - it's a fantastic event and works so well running alongside the Games!
