CURRENT CALENDAR OF SHOWS 2023

The calendar shows the events planned for garden clubs in Queensland on a monthly basis With the uncertainty of COVID 19 restrictions, please refer to the society website to verify if the event is still happening. Most of the events have unknown dates.  As clubs decide on the exact date and flyers are produced.  The details can then be sent to the webmaster.  The webmaster will then update the events.  If clubs think there will be a clash then the clubs can send requests for information to the likely event holders and to those clubs who have not registered the club's event date.  Every attempt will be made to keep this calendar up to date.  The webmaster does not accept any responsibility for the information contained on this web site as all information is gathered on a voluntary basis.
