Floriade

Australia’s Celebration of Spring

Floriade is back! Australia’s biggest celebration of spring, Floriade, will celebrate its 34th year with a spectacular display of over 1,000,000 blooms in Commonwealth Park from 11 September – 10 October 2021.

Canberra will also be bursting with colour in town centres and suburbs across the city, as Floriade Community returns.  

Stay tuned for more information on our 2021 festival!

Floriade Community

Floriade Community was introduced in 2020 as part of Floriade: Reimagined and saw more than 80 community groups plant bulbs and annuals to help create a tulip trail through Canberra’s suburbs.  

Following the overwhelmingly positive community response, an additional 300,000 bulbs and annuals have been made available for the community to plant, nurture and enjoy.

There are many exciting opportunities available to be involved with Floriade, including as a volunteer, market stallholder, food vendor, artist or sponsor.
