An annual festival of flowers, Floriade features tulips as the main attraction. Numerous displays showcase other colorful flowers from around the world. Sculptures, garden stalls, makeshift restaurants, and live music by local performers make this event a popular stop for locals and tourists. Offering a chance for family photos, the festival also hosts a competition where children and their parents paint gnomes or make scarecrows, with the best entry winning a prize. Adults enjoy an event called NightFest, an after-dark extravaganza that includes live music, comedy and acrobatics performances, shopping, cocktails, and movie screenings.

  • Do yourself a favour. Save your time annd effort. This is as boring as hell. Flowers flowers everywhere. Too many people, most inconsiderate. Overpriced food and drink. Better of at home watching pain...  more »

  • A wonderful celebration of spring in our nation's capital. The colourful displays and festival atmosphere made for a great day out. Our new national beverage, barista coffee, was in plentiful, aromatic supply. A cherry picker or drone would have helped with viewing the displays.
  • I have fallen in love with every kaleidoscope of colorus and corner I've turned. Colours, beautifully place gardens and tulip displays, cute little market stalls, memory keepsakes and a nice day out for the month of Spring. Feels like 1950's (colour) film, families, couples, kids, rides for children, a ferris wheel, home made goods, food stalls, garden gnomes and lantern displays. Beautiful nature.
  • Beautiful flower displays, loads to do with the family and children. Loved walking around the lake once I was done with all of the people.
  • Stil a delight but spread out to far for seniors to walk & not a patch on when it first started.
  • Fantastic place for families, they have rides for kids, market place for adults and beautiful flowers for everyone. I have also attended photography workshops hosted by Floriade and was able to access the event before it opened. Great place to take a picnic after work. The onsite food is very expensive however.
