21 Aug SPRING THINGS
Well time has flown and we are finally approaching the start of Spring which sees Toowoomba come to life with festivals and events. Our rooms are filled with out of town visitors eager to discover our region and that is one of the main reasons we love this time of year so much!
We thought we would share our top 4 Spring events on the horizon in Toowoomba and surrounds, and if you haven’t yet visited our beautiful region, let this serve as inspiration to book your trip – and stay at Potters, of course!
THE TOOWOOMBA CARNIVAL OF FLOWERS
Well when it comes to Toowoomba events this one is the biggest and best! The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers sees our region come alive with stunning floral displays throughout our parks and gardens and unique events to suit everyone! This year the Carnival runs Friday 21 to Sunday 30 September with the main event (The Heritage Bank Festival of Food & Wine) taking place across the first weekend. Think live entertainment, glorious food and quality wine all within our city’s iconic park! We simply cannot wait!
THE SPRING POLO
This year will be its third year running and is set to be its best yet! The Spring Polo is one of the iconic events that make up the Carnival of Flowers and its popularity among locals is fierce. This year’s Spring Polo will be held on Saturday 29th September in Queens Park and will be the perfect culmination of fashion, food and fun all whilst spectating the well loved sport of Polo.
DINER EN BLANC
This year will see the first Diner En Blanc to grace the Toowoomba social calendar. On Saturday 29th October, in a secret location, guests will enjoy good food and plenty of champagne whilst conforming with the strictly white dress code. We are so excited to see such a luxurious event, that is known worldwide, come to our local region, and if our bookings across that weekend are anything to go by, we expect it to be a roaring success!
MELBOURNE CUP DAY AT CLIFFORD PARK
It’s the race that stops the nation and what better place to join the fun than at our very own Clifford Park Racecourse! Our friends at the Event Group are hosting the day on Tuesday 6th November and have a number of packages available for you to celebrate in style. So, book the day off work now so as to not miss out!
Of course, there are plenty more fun festivities on the horizon in our local region but this is just a tempting taste of what’s to come. Bring on Spring in Toowoomba we say!
