Plant markets, live tunes and picnic delights – put spring in your step at Roma Street Parkland

By George Hadgelias
It’s time to wake up and smell the roses – spring is soon to be sprung! We’re looking forward to the weather warming up, the city coming alive with colour and a whole bunch of fun activities coming to Brisbane’s lushest spot, Roma Street Parkland. We’re talking live gigs, food trucks, guided tours, plant markets and blooms aplenty – all you need to pack is your picnic basket!
With September welcoming in the arrival of a new season, the best place to celebrate the mercury rising and the flowers blossoming is Roma Street Parkland. The sub-tropical wonderland has a jam-packed calendar of spring events, kicking off on Sunday September 4 with The Sound Society. This afternoon of smooth jazz tunes also happens to fall on Father’s Day, in case you didn’t have anything special planned yet! The fun continues from September 10–11 when Blooms and Tunes rolls back into town. Grab a picnic rug and head to the parklands, which will be filled with a variety of live music and food trucks doling out delicious bites. Delight in the energetic sounds of THUMP, Dillion James Band, King River Rising and Crescent City Players on Saturday while Bullhorn, Jason Daniels Band, The Lyrical and HEAVY WAX take to the stage on Sunday. The Garden Room Café  is also packing gourmet lunch hampers, cheese boards and hosting high teas for those looking to level up their picnic experience. Next up is MOSAIC Festival, which will see Multicultural Australiateam up with Brisbane Serenades for a party to remember on Sunday September 18. Immerse yourself in an exciting celebration of Brisbane’s diversity with dance, music, spoken-word poetry and storytelling, arts and crafts, family-friendly activities, cooking demonstrations and much more.If you’re eager to take some greenery home with you, then you’re in luck! On Saturday September 24, The Plant Market presented by BrisStyle will be filling Celebration Lawn with plenty of primo house plants – from magical monstera to fantastic fiddle-leaf figs and perfect palms. You’ll even be able to get hands on with a creative collection of interactive workshops during the event, including macrame pot holders and kokodama crafting. Budding horticulturists can join one of Roma Street Parkland’s knowledgeable volunteers and staff on a guided tour of the parklands, where you’ll learn about the park’s design, commissioned artworks and areas within the park like the Spectacle Garden. These tours are completely free so all you need to do is pre-register and bring along a comfy pair of walking shoes. Sounds like a bloomin’ great time to us.
