The Gold Coast Renaissance Faire is patterned after the 48-year old California Renaissance Pleasure Faire. Unlike other events, the Gold Coast Faire is focused on sophisticated performances, visual arts, music, dance in a format that is entertaining and accessible. Three stages will show court dances and short plays. Essentially, it is a living theatre that welcomes visitors to join in the fun and pageantry.
The event will take place at Pratten Park, Broadbeach on October 5 to 7, 2013. It is a quick five-minute walk from our Broadbeach Holiday Accommodation.
