Party in the Park

Your Sunday arvo sorted – live music, a sausage sizzle, and family time.

Get your friends and family together twice a month for a Party in the Park with gigs from great bands, a sausage sizzle, Storyfest adventures, and hula hooping – you’ll be able to wrap up your weekend with live entertainment and some quality family time.

The first event, with the incredible Electrik Lemonade, sold out in record time, as did our party with Brazilian samba rock groovers Zambabem and Father’s Day celebration with The Brothers Calling. Coming up next, Gold Coast’s own The Waves (27 Sept).

Presented by HOTA, Home of the Arts

Seating Plan

Party in the Park is General Admission with a twist! To meet social distancing requirements we’ve drawn ‘circle’s on the grass – you book the size that you need and then choose which ‘circle’ you want to sit at when you arrive.

When booking, select ‘1’ for each circle you want to book.

White circles: room for 2-4 people

Sun 27 Sept: The Waves

The Waves are an eclectic bunch of musicians with a dynamic range of musical styles and tastes.

All of the members work either for or with the City of Gold Coast, most notably Councillor Bob La Castra and CEO Dale Dickson. The Waves (previously known as “The Full Stops”) are regular performers around the City, good for all sorts of functions. Their wide experience is reflected in a large setlist of covers plus a few originals.

As well as Bob and Dale, the band line up includes Alton Twine (bass, vocals), Tyrone Gerada (guitar, vocals), Ray Grech (guitar, vocals), Ronda Lettice (lead vocals), Darren Cassidy (keyboards), and Andrew ‘Reido’ Reid (percussion).

Eat & Drink

A family friendly sausage sizzle will take place during Party in the Park (with all donations going back into our Artist Fund), alongside alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages available for purchase from the Lawn Bar. You’re more than welcome to bring your own food, but no hard esky/coolers or BYO alcohol is permitted.

Keeping You Safe

It’s really important to us that you have a safe experience when you come to HOTA. We have a COVID Safe plan which you can read on our FAQs page and Party in the Park will be set up to ensure we meet all social distancing and hygiene guidelines. All you have to do is enjoy yourself!
