The Gold Coast Eisteddfold is now the largest competition of its kind in the country staged in August and September each year.

Apart from individual entrants, around 140 Primary and Secondary Schools and more than 70 Dance Studios participate in sections which include Solo & Group Dance, Piano, Strings & Wind, Instrumental Groups, Bands, Orchestras, Vocal, Choral and Special Needs. In 2013, over 70,000 competitors took to the stage in 529 sections over 7 weeks.
