Spring Community Festival

The Spring Community Festival is the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens premiere festival overflowing with entertainment, activities, rides, food, wine and much, much more. Come along and be a part of a fun family day celebrating spring in Tasmania.
More than 15,000 visitors are expected at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens for this year’s Spring Community Festival.  The weekend event will be held on October 5th & 6th with the vibrant annual display of spring colour providing a dazzling backdrop for a program of non-stop family entertainment, music and food.  There are plenty of activates for the kids with a climbing wall, jumping castles, face painting, sports, fun and games.
The festival highlights a strong bond between the community and the Gardens and it provides an opportunity for the RTBG to enhance its links with local people and visitors. The festival which began as the Tulip Festival has been bringing Tasmanians and visitors together to celebrate spring for more than 25 years and is one of the most popular events on the Gardens’ calendar.
