Ballarat Begonia Festival returns 11 - 20 March 2022

Ballarat will be in full bloom once again as the Ballarat Begonia Festival returns and celebrates its 70th year from Friday 11 to Sunday 20 March 2022.  

Held across 10-days, the free garden-based event in the heart of Victoria’s Goldfields region will embrace the city’s creative community and showcase its signature collection of rare begonias with an exciting new program taking place across the town centre and garden precincts. 

The city’s 150-year-old Botanical Gardens will serve as the event’s main location with a spectacular floral display of 700 rare begonias at the Robert Clark Conservatory. Colourful installations will fill the gardens and Ballarat CBD with the event’s illuminated swan and floral clock returning. Alongside vibrant flower displays, festival-goers can also expect farmers’ markets, live music, family activities, roving performers and more.

Full details on the event program will be announced in February 2022.  

Ballarat will bloom citywide in March with an exciting new Ballarat Begonia Festival.

Celebrate over three weeks, including four weekends from Saturday 6 March to Sunday 28 March, throughout the CBD and our parks and gardens precincts.
