Buy tickets to SCOOP!

This January we’ve got everything you want from summer in one sweet weekend at SCOOP!

Soak up the sun during the day and head lakeside for our epic line-up of ice cream and desserts with more world class circus, splash play and live music, and plenty more.

For those seeking summer fun with a bit of sizzle as the sun sets, head on down to Club SCOOP! our evening program of zany sideshows, cocktails and craft beers, where the naughty side of circus and cocktails collide.


SCOOP! is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
