Festivals

The annual Flower Festival is a chance to show off Toowoomba's parks and gardens at their best.
Toowoomba is nationally renowned for the annual Carnival of Flowers, held each year in September. Many of the city's major parks and gardens are especially prepared for the Carnival, which also includes a prominent Home Garden Competition, with persons able to visit participating homes and gardens for inspection, and a Parade with flower-themed floats. Buses bring people from around the nation, and a popular way to arrive at the Carnival from Brisbane is on specially chartered retired steam or diesel train, which captures the yesteryear aspect of travel to Toowoomba in 19th century wooden carriages.

In 1953 the Carnival of Flowers was the subject of a sponsored film produced by the Queensland Minister for Lands and Irrigation. The Carnival of Flowers depicts the floral parade, a home garden's competition and the crowning of the Floral Queen and is a wonderful portrait of life in 1950's Queensland.
