The annual Ballina Soroptomists Festival of Flowers takes place this year on Wednesday 12th and Thursday 13th July from 11.30am – 5pm in the Methodist Church on Hill Street.
For 25 years now, the Ballina Soroptomists have curated the beautiful Festival of Flowers as part of the Ballina Salmon Festival programme. For their silver anniversary this year, the theme of this very special exhibit is “By the Light of the Silvery Moon”, and each arrangement will interpret that theme in its own unique way.
The Flower Festival is an inclusive event that brings together many different groups from the community, including the four churches from the town, and many different clubs and organisations including the Ballina Carer’s Group, The ICA and indeed the Ballina Salmon Festival committee. Volunteers from each submit a creative arrangement for display for the enjoyment of the public.
The Ballina Soroptomists Festival of Flowers is hosted each year by the Methodist Church on Hill Street, and members of the public are invited to come in and enjoy the beautiful floral displays, lovingly created by the various groups.
FREE. Donations welcome with all proceeds going to local charities.

About Ballina Soroptomists
Soroptimists inspire action and create opportunities to transform the lives of women and girls through a global network of members and partnerships. The Ballina Soroptomists branch is just one year younger than the Ballina Salmon Festival. It was formed on 27th January 1965 in the Downhill Hotel (now the Twin Tress Hotel). Renée Sherry was the very first president.
