Australia's biggest celebration of spring is back with a bang for Floriade 2018. From mid-August to mid-September, Canberra comes to life for 30 days of beautiful blooms, food stalls galore and a range of fun, family-friendly entertainment.
The festival boasts the blossoming of more than one million bulbs and annuals, all whilst celebrating this year's theme — Pop Culture. In its 31st year, Floriade will feature retro-inspired flowerbeds that will showcase some of the 20th Century’s most iconic figures in music, film, literature and social media.

Ideal for keeping the kids entertained throughout the school holidays, Floriade offers a free KidzKlub and an array of hands-on activities and workshops in the Kids Zone.
Pet-loving families will want to diarise the Floriade's Dogs’ Day Out on 14 October, with highlights including Doga In The Park...and pup dress-ups, with 'Superheroes' being the dress code for furry friends.
