Grand Central Floral Parade

Grand Central Floral Parade

The iconic Grand Central Floral Parade is one of Toowoomba’s favourite events of the year! Come along to watch street performers, carnival characters, and roving entertainment escort the stunning floral floats on their journey through the heart of the city to Queens Park.

Come along early to grab a good viewing spot as the whole town and thousands of visitors turn out for the parade! Afterwards head for Godsall St Oval where the floats are on display and the flowers, fruit and vegies that decorated them will be available for purchase.

The parade departs from the corner of Herries & Hume Streets, continues along Herries Street, turns right into Ruthven Street, right into Margaret Street, left onto Hume Street and finishes on Godsall St Oval on the corner of Hume & Godsall Streets.

There are road closures in place around Toowoomba CBD on Saturday 21 September. A comprehensive map of the road closures is available to view here.
