Floriade

12 September to
11 October 2020

Canberra’s celebration of spring

In 2020, Floriade has been reimagined with the annual spring celebration moving from its traditional home in Commonwealth Park to bloom across Canberra.

Floriade: Reimagined offers all the Floriade activities you know and love with a mix of virtual and in-person experiences. Floriade Bloom brings the one million bulbs and annuals out of Commonwealth Park to create a tulip trail across the city while Floriade Life features all your favourite workshops, talks and activities and Floriade Sprouts has everything to keep our youngest Floriade fans entertained.

Everything may be different in 2020, but this spring will see Floriade not only mark the flowers blooming to life after their winter hibernation, but also celebrate the community spirit and resilience that Canberrans continue to display.
