The Event

For 13 years, Christmas By The Sea (CBTS), a free community event held at Palm Beach Parklands, has been run by a committee of local businesses, passionate about giving back to the community. One of the biggest FREE events on the Southern Gold Coast, it draws a crowd of over 5000 people within a relaxed, seaside atmosphere. Children are entertained and delighted by our Kids Wonderland complete with jumping castle, face painting, craft, Santa photos and much more.

Our Street Food Market offers affordable cuisine from all over the world with plenty of delicious savoury and sweet options that will keep the whole family fed and happy.

On stage local musicians and performers provide entertainment before the traditional carols singalong commences as the sun sets.

This year’s event will be held on Tuesday 17th December 2019 from 4.30pm – 8pm.
