Street feasts, side-splitting comedy and certified bangers – what’s on this weekend

From weiners aplenty to spine-tingling strolls, we’ve rounded up the top things to do on the Gold Coast this weekend. Here’s a snapshot of what’s on from Thursday October 14 to Sunday October 17.


Feast on FifthFancy wandering down the local streets, indulging in some delicious bites while taking in the springtime good vibes? Feast on Fifth is coming back to Palmy this weekend! It’s a classic street celebration with family, friends and incredible food and cracking live entertainment. Head down on Saturday arvo for the ultimate afternoon in the sunshine.

Man About the House with Tim Ross at HOTA: Funnyman Tim Ross is bringing his critically acclaimed show Man About the House to HOTA! Performing in the brand-new HOTA Gallery, he will bring his unique blend of comedy, storytelling, music and design combined with his passion for modern design and architecture to this night of guaranteed laughs. If you’re a bit of a design nut, or simply like a chuckle, we strongly recommend you nab one of the final tickets.


The Week of Weiner at Robina Pavilion:  In a nod to the humble sausage and celebration of Oktoberfest, the good people at Robina Pavilion we have created the inaugural “Week of Wiener” dishing up $15 steins and specials on German cuisine this weekend. Friday and Saturday will see award winning Fritz’s Wieners serving up traditional sausages with all the trimmings from their famous truck, while live music will bring the vibes all weekend and is guaranteed to have you dancing. Bring the kids, your friends and your (sausage) dogs.


Harbour Town’s Get Outlet SaleIt’s back! The annual shopping frenzy that is Harbour Town’s Get Outlet Sale is here so you can power through your festive shopping and spoil yourself while you’re at it. As the country’s largest outlet shopping centre, Harbour Town is brimming with killer deals on the daily, but from Friday October 5 through to Sunday October 17, the centre’s exclusive bargains are taken to new heights with a three-day mega sale featuring incredible deals across all stores.


Dogs on the Green – Gold Coast Dog Markets: The much-loved market for our furry friends is back! Bring your dog along for a fun day out to socialise with other dogs and support small businesses who specialise in products and services for our much-loved furry friends. Expect to find more than 70 stalls selling all things puptastic for your pampered pooch – it truly is a dog-lover’s heaven.

Tijuana Cartel at Mo’s Desert Clubhouse: Pumped full of energy and sure to get you dancing, the beat-heavy and groovy sounds of the band have developed over the years to a fun and irresistible party soundtrack. After spending the last year deep in the recording cycle, Tijuana Cartel are back and ready to party! Celebrating the post-lockdown freedom to dance, the album celebrates all of the great things in life. This is a show you don’t want to miss.

The Haunted Passage at Cavill LaneThis year Cavill Lane will be the ultimate in haunted locales to get your Halloween thrills on, with its debut of the Haunted Halloween weekend nights – The Haunted Passage. Startle your senses with The Haunted Passage Haunt Maze among other roving characters feel your spine tingle as you take in the haunted atmosphere. Enjoy some spooky offerings plus eat and drink to your heart’s content. Consider yourself warned – this is not one for the faint-hearted.

Caulfield Cup at The PerchThe sun is shining, the drinks are flowing and all the action is going down trackside – friends, we’re in the midst of spring racing season! If you’re keen to take in this weekend’s Caulfield Cup all in from one of the best spots on the coast, make sure you nab a spot at The Perch – Aquis Park, home of the Gold Coast Turf Club’s newly renovated locale. This weekend’s event for the Caulfield Guineas includes entry to the racecourse, a glorious five-hour drinks package featuring Moët Imperial Brut, a decadent feast to graze on during the day’s festivities and much more.


Odd Mob at Live on The LawnThis cracking session is the perfect excuse to take advantage of these balmy evenings and dance the night away. With the festivities brought to you by Squealing Pig wine, if you’re fond of a drop, you can enjoy entertainment alongside some sublime sips. Catch the beat-spinner responsible for the still-infectious beat ‘Is It A Banger’ who has since released tracks such as ‘Intrinsic’, and ‘Lithium’ – all we can say is, this dance floor is going to go off.

Bellini Saturdays at Nineteen at The Star: If flowing bellinis and moreish share platters are your kind of afternoon vibe, then, friends, this is the way you want to be spending your Saturday. Find yourself a perch overlooking the Broadbeach skyline while you’re treated to three hours of peach-hued sips as you soak up the springtime sun. The three-hour-long session sees the sun dip below the horizon and the good vibes kick up a notch, meaning it’s the perfect event to share with a bunch of friends.
