Hanging Basket Competition

Join our hanging basket competition and have your beautiful basket displayed in the Museum show ring.

As part of our contribution to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers we are running a Hanging Basket Competition with all baskets displayed in the Museum’s Show Ring for the duration of Carnival from 15 to 24 September 2017.

We would like to invite you participate and you will be provided with the basket, potting mix and fertiliser in early June, courtesy of Yates. You would be required to deliver a flourishing basket to the Museum between 8 to 13 September 2017.

Entrants will be judged upon their interpretation of this year’s theme: ‘AROUND THE WORLD’.

There are three categories:

  • Artisan/creative design
  • General
  • School/ Educational Group

The competition is limited to 60 hanging baskets across all categories, so you will need to get in quick if you’re interested in participating.

The winning basket owners will receive BMS Mitre 10 gift cards.

Please Note: Expressions of Interests close 1 June 2017, or when all 60 baskets have been allocated.

Email inquiries@cobbandco.qm.qld.gov.au to express your interest in participating.
