Floriade has been reimagined in 2020 with the annual spring celebration moving from its traditional home in Commonwealth Park to bloom all over Canberra’s suburbs and CBD, giving Canberrans that much-needed slice of spring joy. A tulip trail has been created with floral plantings done by the Floriade horticulture team and over 90 Canberra community groups. The festival will allow the community to connect safely while social distancing and public health restrictions remain in place.
Floriade: Reimagined runs from September 12 to October 11 2020 offering all of the Floriade activities that you know and love with a mixture of virtual and in-person experiences divided into three pillars below:
- Floriade Life: horticulture workshops, lifestyle talks, fitness classes and an emarketplace showcasing all your favourite Floriade traders and foodies.
- Floriade Sprouts: children’s activities about sustainability and the environment, a gnome hunt and story time.
- Floriade NightFest: for one-night only on Friday 2 October 2020. Stay tuned for more programming announcements.
Celebrate the community spirit and resiliance that Canberrans have displayed during the recent challenging time and plan your spring celebration at floriadeaustralia.com. Events ACT trusts the Floriade community to engage in a manner that adheres to their relevant state government’s public health and travel restrictions. If guests are not in Canberra, they can still experience Floriade: Reimagined through their screens with the festival’s virtual events program.
