Pride floral exhibition at The Calyx in The Domain

Floral mannequin flowers

Presented as part of Sydney WorldPride Pride Amplified, the world-renowned floral show Fleurs de Villes PRIDE is coming back with an exclusive Preview Night, and a groovy Floral Disco, alongside the intriguing guided Queer Plants Walk and botanical Archie Rose Spirits Tasting and Garden Walk adventures all coming to life in the central events hub, The Calyx in The Domain park, Sydney.

Minus the alcohol, loud music and obscene (-ly lovely) nudity that takes over Oxford Street and Hordern Pavillion when Mardi Gras is in town, this is a way for friends and members of the rainbow community to celebrate with a little more peaceful contemplation.

Flowers have always been a way to express one’s feelings. There is a reason why different flowers emit different meanings. If you have been thinking about gifting a bouquet, why not get flowers online from this website.

Here’s a run down of what’s on:

Fleurs de Villes: PRIDE

The famous international floral show Fleurs de Villes is returning to The Calyx at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney between 17 – 26 February for another fresh celebration. Fleurs de Villes: PRIDE is a stunning 10-day exhibition celebrating joy and inclusivity by featuring 15 beautiful floral mannequins paying homage to inspirational members and allies to the LGBTQIA+ community. These stunning masterpieces will be designed and created by talented Sydney florists including Uncle & Ghost Botanics, Rose Moon Flowers and Hayfever flowers to name a few.

To get a sneak peek of the profound display guests can attend the exclusive Preview Night on 16 February to meet and greet the florists and have their say on the judging panel to award the top floral design with a complementary champagne in hand.

Fleurs de Villes: PRIDE Floral Disco

Dress to impress and toast to the first day of Sydney WorldPride on 17 February as The Calyx welcomes their Floral Disco to bring together plants, fun DJ beats and flamboyant flavour to celebrate some of Australia’s most cherished culture icons and trailblazers surrounding the Fleurs de Villes: PRIDE exhibit with delicious food and drinks offerings from the Leaf Department Café. DJ Rodd Richards will be performing his upbeat techno disco hits on the spin tables to dance the night away alongside powerhouse vocals from singer Arrnott Olsen.  

Queer Plants Walk

Take a deep dive into the weird, wonderful, and sometimes bizarre world of plants on a 90 minute Queer Plants Walk. During this sunset stroll you can explore the diverse ways plants have evolved across millions of years as you meander through the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney learning about queer orchids who trick unwitting pollinators with the promise of sex, all the way to majestic strangler figs.
