New to the Surfers Paradise Festival in 2014, Surf, Seafood and Symphony, presented by Capri on Via Roma. This new edition brings together all elements that make the Surfers Paradise Festival a much loved event! Designed to tantalise all your senses, Surf, Seafood and Symphony is the premier food event of the Festival calendar, coupled with a beach-set symphony performance by the Royal Australian Navy Band and the Gold coast Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Surfers Paradise Foreshore will come alive with food stalls showcasing the best that our traders have to offer in their seafood and international menus. You can pick up a plate from some of the yummiest restaurants on the Gold Coast.

A day of exceptional entertainment throughout the precinct will culminate on Saturday evening in a “first” for Surfers Paradise. Then from 7pm, the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra will delight the crowd with Greg Moore and Kimberly Hodgson showcasing their vocal talents. With a range in music from Californian Dreamin’ to The Prayer to The Miss Saigon, there is something to suit everyone.

Bring along the family and a picnic blanket and enjoy this free event, concluding with a spectacular fireworks show right on Surfers Paradise Beach.

Experience the Chefs of Surfers Paradise as they provide cooking demonstrations that teach you the how-to of gourmet cooking.
