What's on in Canberra

Not only does Canberra put on some of the nation’s biggest festivals and blockbuster exhibitions, we also have a thriving calendar of foodie events, markets, performances, family-friendly activities, sport, and live music.

Canberra's events and festivals celebrate our four distinct seasons with the Truffle Festival in winter, glorious Floriade in spring, the power of Summernats in summer, Enlighten Festival in autumn, and live music all year round. That’s just a taste – start searching our event calendar to find what’s on in Canberra.
