Abstract A topological gauge theory of gravity in five dimensions is presented. This is based on the Chern-Simons five-form and the SO(1, 5) gauge group. The action contains a Gauss-Bonnet term, an Einstein term and a cosmological constant. Quantization and renormalizability of the theory are discussed. Indications of how to generalize to arbitrary odd dimensions are given.
