Floriade returns with the Sounds of Spring in 2022!

The gates of Commonwealth Park will open again from Saturday 17 September to Sunday 16 October for Floriade: Australia’s Biggest Celebration of Spring!

The theme this year is the Sounds of Spring, and visitors will enjoy a vibrant display of over a million blooms set to a soundtrack of diverse musical performances in a new and exciting program which will be announced later in the year.

Floriade Community is also set to deliver a splash of colour across Canberra’s town centres and suburbs. Community groups and organisations are now invited to submit applications to be part of Floriade Community, with 300,000 bulbs and annuals available to plant and enjoy.

NightFest is also back from 29 September – 2 October. Details about the program and tickets will be available soon.

While you’re waiting for more details, you can still explore the Floriade On-Demand library and enjoy a vast range of gardening tips and tricks, horticultural knowledge and kids’ activities.
