I have created ethereum smart contract using go language. Smart contract successfully deployed. I have a created many transactions on ethereum private network. But I confuse how to get event log.

Here's a full example of how to query event logs. The example shows how to query for all ERC-20 event logs:

package main

import (

    token "./contracts_erc20" // for demo

// LogTransfer ..
type LogTransfer struct {
    From   common.Address
    To     common.Address
    Tokens *big.Int

// LogApproval ..
type LogApproval struct {
    TokenOwner common.Address
    Spender    common.Address
    Tokens     *big.Int

func main() {
    client, err := ethclient.Dial("https://mainnet.infura.io")
    if err != nil {

    // 0x Protocol (ZRX) token address
    contractAddress := common.HexToAddress("0xe41d2489571d322189246dafa5ebde1f4699f498")
    query := ethereum.FilterQuery{
        FromBlock: big.NewInt(6383820),
        ToBlock:   big.NewInt(6383840),
        Addresses: []common.Address{

    logs, err := client.FilterLogs(context.Background(), query)
    if err != nil {

    contractAbi, err := abi.JSON(strings.NewReader(string(token.TokenABI)))
    if err != nil {

    logTransferSig := []byte("Transfer(address,address,uint256)")
    LogApprovalSig := []byte("Approval(address,address,uint256)")
    logTransferSigHash := crypto.Keccak256Hash(logTransferSig)
    logApprovalSigHash := crypto.Keccak256Hash(LogApprovalSig)

    for _, vLog := range logs {
        fmt.Printf("Log Block Number: %d\n", vLog.BlockNumber)
        fmt.Printf("Log Index: %d\n", vLog.Index)

        switch vLog.Topics[0].Hex() {
        case logTransferSigHash.Hex():
            fmt.Printf("Log Name: Transfer\n")

            var transferEvent LogTransfer

            err := contractAbi.Unpack(&transferEvent, "Transfer", vLog.Data)
            if err != nil {

            transferEvent.From = common.HexToAddress(vLog.Topics[1].Hex())
            transferEvent.To = common.HexToAddress(vLog.Topics[2].Hex())

            fmt.Printf("From: %s\n", transferEvent.From.Hex())
            fmt.Printf("To: %s\n", transferEvent.To.Hex())
            fmt.Printf("Tokens: %s\n", transferEvent.Tokens.String())

        case logApprovalSigHash.Hex():
            fmt.Printf("Log Name: Approval\n")

            var approvalEvent LogApproval

            err := contractAbi.Unpack(&approvalEvent, "Approval", vLog.Data)
            if err != nil {

            approvalEvent.TokenOwner = common.HexToAddress(vLog.Topics[1].Hex())
            approvalEvent.Spender = common.HexToAddress(vLog.Topics[2].Hex())

            fmt.Printf("Token Owner: %s\n", approvalEvent.TokenOwner.Hex())
            fmt.Printf("Spender: %s\n", approvalEvent.Spender.Hex())
            fmt.Printf("Tokens: %s\n", approvalEvent.Tokens.String())
