Due to the severe weather warnings issued for South East Queensland as Tropical Cyclone Oma moves towards the Gold Coast this weekend, February 23, The Surrounds Summer Social will be postponed for two weeks.

The Surrounds at Helensvale will now come to life on Saturday 9 March, with its second annual pop up carnival – The Surrounds Summer Social. All our planned food, entertainment, fireworks and fun will be the same on our new date. If you are able to update this online it would be much appreciated.

Villawood Properties has again partnered with the team behind Nightquarter to deliver a vibrant community event treating locals and visitors to a night of food, fun and fireworks. The event will be Nightquarter’s final hurrah in Helensvale, after it closed its doors on February 1.

Kicking off at 5pm, the street carnival will showcase some of Nightquarter’s favourite vendors, with a range of popular Gold Coast food trucks dishing up sweet and savoury delights. There will also be a host of freebies for the kids – big and small – to enjoy. Face painters, balloon artists, a jumping castle and roving performers will keep the little ones entertained.

Meanwhile the adults can enjoy the live music as they sip on craft beers, local wines and summer cocktails at the Spritzer Bar, offering prime position to view the fireworks.

Located in The Surrounds Designer Display Village, 10 leading builders will be serving up special treats across the 30 display homes in the village. which will be open for viewing.
