City of Hobart Floral Shows 2020-21

Next date: Friday, 12 March 2021 | 12:00 PM to 05:00 PM

The 2020-21 City of Hobart Floral Shows will be run in accordance with COVID-19 government safety regulations. The Town Hall lift is currently limited to one passenger with the assistance of one carer if required. Visitor numbers need to be managed so we ask that groups advise via email of their intention to attend events@hobartcity.com.au

Please be advised that the 2020 Orchid Society Show will not be presented due to COVID-19. We very much look forward to its return in 2021 and thank the Tasmanian Orchid Society for their long-running support of this event.

Since 1875, the City of Hobart, in conjunction with the Hobart Horticultural Society (HHS), has presented an annual program of floral shows to floral enthusiasts.  The Hobart Town Hall Ballroom is a glorious backdrop for the 2020-21 season.  Amateur and novice sections are a great way for the uninitiated to learn the time-honoured tradition of showing at this highly-regarded, professionally-judged event.

The HHS Spring Show brings with it all the colour and joy of spring.  Immerse yourself in the captivating magic of flowers with the City of Hobart’s floral shows, which once again will be on display at the Hobart Town Hall this spring.  Daffodils and Camellias are the focus of this show and amateurs are encouraged to enter.

The HHS Rose and Iris Show in November brings a festival of colour and scent to the Town Hall Ballroom.  This is a lavish display of exotic blooms.

Finally, the annual HHS Dahlia Show in March 2021 provides a sea of colour and vibrancy that is sure to invigorate the senses.

Many of the floral shows also have plant sales.  The usual floral art sections will not be included in the 2020-21 season.

This year’s shows will not include the Rotary Club of Salamanca’s usual offering of Devonshire teas and light refreshments.

The shows will be held on the first floor of the Hobart Town Hall in the Ballroom.  Accessible parking is located at the rear of the Town Hall and elevator access is available from the Town Hall rear car park (off Elizabeth Street).  There are ramps at the main entrance of the Town Hall and the elevator will take guests to level 1, Ballroom.

Photographers are welcome to attend the shows prior to public opening on Fridays and Saturdays from 8 am –10 am. Please email events@hobartcity.com.au for more information.
