Floriade has strengthened its position as Australia’s biggest celebration of spring with this year’s event attracting the largest number of attendees in its 32-year history.
With an increased focus on strong local partnerships and refreshed event layout combining with beautiful weather, Floriade 2019 attracted 507,550 people through the gates across the month long festival and NightFest. This figure exceeds Floriade’s previous 2014 record of 481,854 people.
This figure increases attendance at last year’s event by 27,000 people.
This year there was a continued focus on the event layout, including a change in market stall locations, more seating around Commonwealth Park and more entertainment across multiple stages and venues.
With its focus on attracting interstate and international visitors, Floriade showcased some of the best products from our region with Pialligo Estate, Capital Brewing Co., Contentious Character and Underground Spirits joining a range of local food vendors and market stalls.
Events ACT thanks the Canberra and region industry members for contributing to a successful event.
Floriade returns to Commonwealth Park from Saturday 12 September to Sunday 11 October 2020.
