Floriade, Australia’s biggest celebration of spring, returns to Commonwealth Park from Saturday 14 September until Sunday 13 October to celebrate its 32nd year. This year’s theme, World in Bloom, will be showcased through designs across 21 flowerbeds and more than 189 portable raised flowerbeds positioned throughout the park, alongside a brimming program of live entertainment, food, drinks and market stalls.
Following the success of an increased local produce focus in 2019, Floriade has renewed partnerships with local food and beverage producers, including Pialligo Estate who will run Floriade’s main cafe space with their Pialligo Urban offering. Other returning partnerships include Capital Brewing Co. as the beer partner, Contentious Character as the wine partner and Underground Spirits as the festival’s gin partner.
Floriade’s foodie offerings will continue into the evenings for NightFest (3 October to 6 October), including a soon-to-be-announced night feast offering from Pialligo Estate. Visitors are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy after-dark offerings from a wider range of food traders than previous years.
These partnerships showcase the best of the Canberra region‘s award-winning food and beverages at one of our biggest annual tourism events, with more than 500,000 visitors expected to walk through the gates during the 30-day festival.
Program information can be found on the website, floriadeaustralia.com, with more events announced in the coming weeks.
