Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers
There’s power in petals! The multi-award-winning Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers (TCOF) has unveiled a joy-filled month-long program of celebrations for 2021. An extension of the 10-day event that has taken place in Queensland’s city on the range for the past 72 years, and a sign of the success of its COVID-19 planning.
Taking centre stage over the new 30-day format will be flowers and local flavours, as the event blooms into a truly region-wide experience for both locals and visitors.
TCOF 2020 was the first free, unfenced, outdoor, major tourism event in Australia to be delivered during COVID-19 restrictions, and saw more than 200,000 visitors from all over Queensland attend. Today the Toowoomba Regional Council Mayor Paul Antonio announced that TCOF 2021 would be extended from the usual 10-day format, to run the full month, from September 1 to 30 with Council’s gardeners preparing to plant over 190,000 blooms.
