Floriade

12 September to
11 October 2020

Canberra’s celebration of spring

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

Floriade not only marked flowers blooming to life after their winter hibernation, but also celebrated the community spirit and resilience that Canberrans displayed throughout the year.

Floriade: Reimagined offered all the Floriade activities you know and love with a mix of virtual and in-person experiences. Tune into on-demand Floriade Life talks and activities and interactive Floriade Sprouts videos that are sure to keep our youngest Floriade fans entertained.
