The Star Rooftop Entertainment Hub will come alive with a feast of FREE events in September at the Main Beach Spring Flower Festival. With a view over the flower-lined Tedder Avenue, this quirky rooftop location is where headline speakers, performers and botanically-minded exhibitors will entertain and inspire you. Adding spice to the mix will be the Jaguar Gold Coast Garden Bar, quality food trucks with a flowery twist and vintage garden theming. Bubbles and craft beer will be available in abundance.

Popular presenters on flower and gardening topics include Australia’s leading expert on edible flowers, Jerry Colbey-Williams from ABC Gardening Australia, an award-winning floral designer, and many more. Performers include popular local musicians who will be introduced by a well known Melbourne music identity fresh from the Brisbane BIGSOUND Festival. And as a special bonus, several of South East Queensland’s highly regarded Indigenous artists and performers will be sharing with us their culture and creative talents.

Providing extra interest, local creative makers and growers will be showcasing their products and handmade pieces. Make sure you bring a carry bag for your impulse purchases!
