Flower Festival


The Flower Festival symbolizes renewal, hope and transformation! It is the magic of the three elements that sets the tone for welcoming the arrival of spring. This magic crosses several counties in the Madeira Archipelago, leaving no one indifferent to the bold decorations that reveal authentic works of rich art in flowers. This year takes place exceptionally between the 3rd and 27th of September and is part of the Wine Festival.
With the theme “Madeira, Flower Universe”, the Flower Festival will include more than 50 performances from 9 groups and allow the usual procession to be replaced by events in three different spaces in the city of Funchal, on the first and third weekend of September.
There are several treats in sight that you really can´t miss! The floral carpets built by various artists are a must-see, especially on the Avenida Arriaga.
The Flower Exhibition at Praça da Restauração and the “Wall of Hope” at Largo do Município, which culminates in a ceremony appealing for peace, are also not to be missed. The Central Plate will host the usual little houses (market for flowers and regional flavours), selling flowers and regional products.
In order to comply with the directives of the health authorities, with regards to the proliferation of COVID 19, measures to prevent and contain the pandemic will be implemented in these places.
