New dates for the Flower Festival have been announced by the Regional Secretary for Tourism and Culture (SRTC), which will take place between the 1st and the 24th of October, with the theme “Madeira, Garden of Hope”.
As in 2020, this year's edition brings together two major events, the Flower and the Wine Festival.
The "Wall of Hope" children's flower display ceremony takes place at the Praça do Município on 2nd October (Saturday) and the Allegoric Parade on 3rd October (Sunday) along the Avenida do mar.
Avenida Arriaga will have its usual floral carpets and exhibition at Praça do Povo and Praça da Restauração, including the wine festivities, and lots of entertainment.
The Flower Festival, one of Madeira's main tourist events, that was scheduled for May 2021, was postponed due to the global pandemic situation, including all other major events.
The Atlantic Festival (International Fireworks Competition), which takes place every year in June, has been cancelled for the same reason.
Enjoy the many photos and videos of previous years' events.
