Enjoy everything you love about summer in one sweet weekend.
Soak up the sun during the day and head lakeside at HOTA for an epic line-up of ice cream and desserts with world-class circus, splash play, live music, and even a mermaid or two. BYO floaties and sunscreen and enjoy those summer feels.
We’re diving in with some of Australia’s best Circus companies premiering new works specially created for outdoor and pop-up spaces. Watch as Company 2 string up a tight-rope over the water; see Circa dazzle the crowds with their spectacle that is Collider; marvel as Flipside Circus bring the Summer Play Factor to wow the kids; and delight as Hoopla Clique mix food and circus.
And for those seeking summer fun with a bit of sizzle, you’ll want to join us as the sun sets for Club SCOOP! – an evening program of zany sideshows, cocktails and craft beers, where the naughty side of circus and cocktails collide, featuring performances from Thicc Shake Crew, The Space Cowboy, and other special guests.
With a giant Ferris Wheel and the Surfers Paradise Skyline as the biggest and best backdrop, day or night, SCOOP! is the answer to your summertime cravings.
