Teddy Bears' Picnic

Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers may be famed as Australia’s most beautiful event, but there’s a special gathering that happens during this celebration that’s just unbearably cute – it’s the Teddy Bears’ Picnic at Picnic Point (of course!),

To be held on Saturday, 23 September and featuring interactive shows, fairy bread making, colouring-in stations, roving entertainment, sausage sizzle and of course a Teddy Bear Parade, this is one for the young, and the young at heart.

Kids of all ages are encouraged to bring their own teddy bears to join in the fun and the event is free to attend.

In a very special coup, Australia’s famous Tambo Teddies will be attending with an extra special guest!

Last year, this iconic Australian teddy bear designer created a tribute bear for the gardeners of Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. He was incredibly cute, decked out with a teddy bear ‘Akubra’ style hat, khaki bib overalls and a sweet green floral shirt, ready for a day’s gardening.  This year will see another very special gardening Tambo Teddies called ‘Baree Blossom’ to be won, just by attending the event.

“Everyone loves their teddy bears, and we want to see as many bears at the Teddy Bears’ Picnic as possible,” Toowoomba Regional Council Environment and Community Committee Chair Cr James O’Shea.

“We have a great group of entertainers coming who will lead a teddy bear parade and there will be prizes for the best-dressed bears and there’ll be a teddy roll call.

“So much work goes into the gardens for Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers. The team plants 190,000 bulbs and seedlings so it’s great that Tambo Teddies have paid tribute to our gardeners.”
