New Events for Southern Gold Coast

Posted on Tuesday, June 30, 2015

Several exciting new events are making their way to the Southern Gold Coast later this year. Coming to our Southern shores in late September, the Gold Coast Festival of Kites is a first for the city, and builds on the much-loved event which commenced as the Kirra Kite Festival several years ago.

The Festival was announced earlier in 2015, and is a joint venture by the three alliances – Surfers Paradise Alliance, Broadbeach Alliance and Connecting Southern Gold Coast – with the three beachside regions to be activated across the week-long Festival. Highlights of the festival will include night time flights, and the inclusion of Kite Masters from the Gold Coast, South East Queensland Malaysia, Canada, Germany & New Zealand – making it a truly international event.

Also new for the Southern Gold Coast, the Kirra Criterium speed cycling race has been added to the event calendar to coincide with the annual Tour de Valley cycling time trial event in October.

The speed race will be held on Saturday 10 July and is shaping up to be a truly exciting event for interested cyclists and the general public as it utilises Musgrave St Kirra. It will be one event not to be missed!
