Ballarat Begonia Festival has changed in format, duration and location in 2021. The garden-based horticultural festival will be held over three weeks from 6 to 28 March.

The festival will occur over a 23 days period throughout the CBD and the City's Parks and Gardens precincts.

You can immerse yourself in a giant illuminated garden which will be beautiful by day and enchanting by night.

A creative display of begonias showcasing more than 700 of the city's finest blooms will be on display at the Robert Clark Conservatory at the Ballarat Botanical Gardens.

Adorning the Town Hall will be a Begonia-inspired floral garland created by Deanne Gilson, an award-winning local artist and proud Wadawurrung woman. She has handcrafted and painted bespoke begonias, each made from paper clay.

Visitors can explore the Urban Garden of plants and flowers created by floral extraordinaire Katie Marx together with local and regional florists or you can witness a floating Begonia carpet, pioneered by Floral Enterprise's Kevin Moneghetti.
