During Floriade’s 33-year history the festival has transformed into Australia’s biggest celebration of spring with approximately half a million guests annually.
2020’s festival not only marks flowers blooming to life after their winter hibernation, but also celebrates the community spirit and resilience that Canberrans have displayed during recent challenging times.
In 2020, Floriade has been reimagined with the annual spring celebration moving from its traditional home in Commonwealth Park to bloom across Canberra. One million bulbs and annuals will create a tulip trail through the ACT’s suburbs and city.
With floral plantings by the Floriade horticulture team and over 90 Canberra community groups, this year’s festival allows the community to connect safely while public health restrictions are in place.
