While summer might be cooling down, our autumn calendars are heating up with a smattering of events, eats and endless activities. So there’s no better way to float into the season than with a saunter into one of the many events taking over The Star Gold Coast this March.

Whether it’s a feast with friends, games night of a new variety or alfresco tunes with some of the finest talent gracing Gold Coast stages. The Star Gold Coast has pulled all the stops to host an impressive lineup of events to add to your calendar this season. 

Here’s every highlight affair to nibble, sip and lounge to this March.

Clink At Cucina Vivo’s Prosecco Long Lunch

Transport your senses to the windswept cliffs of Italy’s Amalfi Coast with a decadent afternoon of authentic Italian grazing, and flagship zesty prosecco. Book your trip to The Star Gold Coast’s own Cucina Vivo’s Prosecco Long Lunch on Saturday, March 11 at 12pm for an indulgent three-course share style feast, paired with a crisp 2.5 hour drink package pouring Dal Zotto Prosecco. Following on from March 8’s International Women’s Day, guest will be joined by Jane Thomson, founder of The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society and the Australian Women in Wine Awards. She will MC the day, sharing her expertise, as you taste your way around antipasti boards spilling with decadent inclusions like caprese salami, house made pesto and lemon scented goats cheese. Before sinking your fork into mushroom and truffle arancini, semolina dusted loligo squid and the Pizzailoa Chef’s speciality pizza. All to the crooning soundtrack of live music floating through the airwaves. At a neat $95 per person, save your seat here

Rock Up To Drag Extravaganzas 

If you’re in the mood for a fabulous night out brimming with a fierce lineup of star performers, look no further than Thursday’s A Drag at Atrium Bar. Featuring death-drop-filled performances from four jaw-dropping RuPaul’s Drag Race queens, as well as a squad of local talent, settle in for 90 minutes of pure entertainment from 7:30pm Thursdays in March. Or opt to sashay in from 6pm to sip your arrival Belvedere cocktail and order from food and cocktail bites available for purchase throughout the night. At just $25 per person, this adults only evening makes for a starry-eyed must on your list of events to attend on the Gold Coast this March. Book your tickets here

Lounge On The Lawn With Lisa Hunt

Nothing dusts your hands of the week quite like rounding up your mates for a lawn-side lounge while the sun mellows, then sinks into the horizon. That’s why you’d be mad to miss one of two Friday sunset sessions featuring soulful songbird, Lisa Hunt, during this residency on the Lawn. Revel in the kind of classic tunes laced with disco beats, mo town harmonies and funk-filled riffs that show exactly why Lisa’s toured with music greats like James Brown, Jimmy Barns and even Ray Charles. Dubbed the best free event for music lovers this Spring, head down on March 3 or 24 for a 5pm start. For more information, head here

Check Out Weekend Headliner Saturdays

Got a hunger that only ‘more headliners’ can satisfy? Settle those rumbles with two next-level performances held on The Lawn this March. Kicking off spring’s lineup on March 4, catch multi-talented Chris Sebastian’s vocal mastery and effortless crowd captivating sounds through a soulful melodic journey. Or claim a grassy knoll on March 25 for a performance by goose-bump blanketing Gaudion from 6pm. This acoustic set includes all the ingredients to set the scene for a night that feels like it's been plucked directly from a rom com. Did we mention it's free? Check out more information here

Try Your Luck At Bingo Loco

It’s only natural to be curious about what goes down at the self-proclaimed ‘best bingo show on Earth’. Read: Bingo Loco. But this really isn’t your usual bowls club ‘legs eleven’ delivered through a yawn kind of night. Actually, it’s a raucous event fit with mesmerising special effects, hosted by hilarious comedian MCs, featuring glamorous dancers and the kinds of theatrics that’ll completely blow your mind. It’s a lot, but in the best way possible. So strap yourself in for shenanigans at Bingo Loco this April 14. Bring your a-game for competitive lip sync battles, high energy dance-offs and confetti cannons galore. And if you rake in top points? You may leave with a prize as extravagant as a holiday to Bali, a car or a boat. But then again, perhaps it’ll be a bathtub, 3 metre long teddy bag or a bag of rubbish. Book your tickets here


Belly Laugh At Comedy Club 

Fill your belly with laughs at this comedy night at Atrium Bar’s Comedy Club, every Wednesday night. Sip on a refreshing cocktail and let local and national comedians tickle your funny bone. The best thing is that tickets are totally free, leaving you with more coin to drop on a meal to accompany the laughs in your belly. Walk-ins are very welcome, and groups over four are encouraged to book a table ahead of time. To check out all the info, head over here
