Floriade is the official welcoming of Spring in Canberra, and while it looks a little different from usual, there’s over a million bulbs filling planter boxes across the city to enjoy, and accessible online and intimate in-person events to put you in the heart of the action.
The culture rises when the sun sets, with evenings filled food trucks and the springtime chill at Nightfest pivoting to 'NightFeast' – with eat in and at-home options to bring all the best tastes of Canberra’s best eats to your kitchen. Once the sun rises, you can follow the tulip trail across the city, head out on a gnome hunt, or see what’s happening across the precinct on any given day on the Floriade programme.
It’s essential to get tickets for sessions, to avoid missing out on all the great events on offer. Some of the program highlights include:
You can check out all the brilliant events, including free, online and in-person events on the Floriade website.
