Floriade is Australia’s biggest celebration of spring. This iconic Canberra event returns from Saturday 16 September until Sunday 15 October 2017 10am to 7pm each day.
NightFest will run from 8pm to 11pm across two great weekends: Friday 22 September – Sunday 24 September and Friday 29 September – Sunday 1 October 2017.
It showcases one million flowers in bloom throughout Canberra’s Commonwealth Park and entry is free. The event welcomes more than 400,000 local, interstate and international visitors each year.
Developed in 1988 as a grand, one off floral tribute to mark Australia’s Bicentenary and Canberra’s 75th anniversary, Floriade has become Canberra’s most iconic annual tourism event and Australia’s premier spring festival.
