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.

over the years the Floriade experience has gotten less enjoyable with less activities and food sources.

What an awesome experience it was to look at the floral beauty. So much hard work must have gone in to maintain the flowers. Excellent display. Delight for the eyes. Great atmosphere. Perfect for family time. You can find food, beer, some joy rides, music and shop amidst beautiful flowers and their fragrance. Highly recommended.
Beautiful flowers and getting very commercial with shops everywhere. I think the whole experience would be better if the retail area was in one place and leave the garden free from tents full of hawkers. We were there on dogs day out and had a great time. The nuts were good too.
