Floriade 2014

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.

Floriade is managed and delivered by Events ACT on behalf of the ACT Government and in partnership with an expert team of landscape gardeners, a band of loyal contractors and volunteers, and the support of local and national sponsors.

The floral display of more than a million bulbs and annuals planted across 8,000 square metres of inner city parkland is more than just a flower show.

Floriade is a diverse, ever expanding program of music, cultural celebrations, food and wine, horticultural workshops, market traders, artistic displays, entertainment and recreational activities.
