It’s that time of the year again when anticipation rises and the gardens bloom for the famous Carnival of Flowers in Toowoomba! 

The 2020 Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is going ahead – despite changes to daily life and albeit with a few event adjustments – yet, no matter whether it’s your first time or not, you can be sure it’ll be as memorable as ever with 10 full days of floral festivity, mouthwatering regional food and family-friendly entertainment in none other than Australia’s colourful Garden City.

This year marks the carnival’s 71st anniversary and, just like every year, it’s simply not to be missed! Here’s a rundown of what to start looking forward to this spring:

  • stunning floral displays, family entertainment and live performances at Queens Park Toowoomba, Laurel Bank Park, Picnic Point, Japanese Gardens, Boyce Gardens and more
  • Grand Central Floral Parade going ahead but as a static display (still a sight you won’t want to miss)
  • Tastes of Toowoomba – taste the best local and regional cuisine while getting your hands on a new $20 #trEATS springtime special
  • Toowoomba Trails Walk & Talk Tours – Royal Bulls Head Inn Tour, Architecture Styles, Toowoomba During World War II, Laneways + Street Art and more
  • Carnival of Flowers Events including Bromeliad Society Annual Spring Show, Spring in the Garden, St Luke’s Flower and Music Festival, St Patrick’s Cathedral Floral Display, Carnival of Trains, Toowoomba’s Finest Craft Show and more!

For past visitors, several annual events won’t be going ahead this year due to unfortunate current circumstances, such as the Toowoomba Exhibition Gardens, Orchid Society Spring Show, Bonsai Group Inc Annual Show, Geranium Society Inc Show, Succulent Fest, Teapot Extravaganza and Downlands Art Exhibition.

Regardless, Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers 2020 will be FREE to attend as usual with plenty to see and do for all over 10 festivity-filled days. Plus, we all know there isn’t a better time in the year to visit Toowoomba!
