Australian Street Entertainment Carnival


Following the recent announcement made by the Australian Government advising of the ban on outdoor events exceeding 500 people, it is with a heavy heart we have decided to cancel the Australian Street Entertainment Carnival 2020. While we are truly passionate about our event and would have loved to have seen it take place across the Easter long weekend from 10 – 13  April, the health of visitors, event partners and our team is our highest priority.

We understand this will be disappointing news for all who planned to attend, however, this is unfortunately beyond our control. During this unknown and troublesome time, we would like to remind everyone to continue supporting local businesses and traders throughout Surfers Paradise and the broader Gold Coast area.

Should you have any further questions please email or call (07) 5584 3700 during business hours (8:30am – 5pm).

Step right up, step right up to the annual Australian Street Entertainment Carnival (ASEC). This free entertainment festival will have you wanting more with skilled performances by the most remarkable international and national street entertainers.

Walk by and discover the best and most talented performers you wouldn’t see otherwise from the ever so popular acrobats, dancers, musicians, magicians and comedians that is sure to keep the whole family amused.

ASEC proudly provides a lively platform for home-grown street entertainers from all backgrounds and abilities the opportunity to develop and build experience in front of large crowds in the heart of Surfers Paradise.
