horticultural Expo - Laidley Cultural Centre


The Laidley Cultural Centre is your first stop after leaving the Warrego Highway and arriving at the festival.


At this venue you will find The Horticultural Expo Market Days, a totally gardening event! Browse the markets stalls, trade sites, enjoy a coffee and a selection of food from the food trucks on site.  Most of the stalls are indoors so the weather won't stop this event going ahead. Entry is by gold coin donation. Take home some of the diverse range of plants, garden products and other items available for purchase. 

Food and drinks, including specialty coffee will be available from the food trucks. The auditorium has all the comfort facilities you need after a drive out to the festival. 

Prepare to be 'wowed' by the display on the stage as we celebrate the festival theme, City comes to the Country. The display is created by Laidley Garden Club Life Member and Patron Heather King, who has been involved with the festival since it's inception in 1963. Each year Heather creates a themed display for all to enjoy and photograph - be sure to upload your photos to social media using #laidleyspringfestival.
