This year the Flower Festival takes place from the 9th to the 15th of May in Funchal, and the theme is “The Route of Flowers”.
This incredible event begins on Saturday morning with the Children’s Parade, which runs along the main streets of Funchal to the municipal Square for the construction of the “Wall of Hope” that is a wall made by flowers.
On Sunday afternoon the streets of “Avenida do Mar” in Funchal will be filled with music and fun as the parade passes by, with colourfully decorated floats with all kinds of flowers from all parts of the world.
There will be many other entertaining activities going on at the same time: the creation of delicate floral carpets in the main squares of “Avenida Arriaga”, music concerts, performances by regional folklore groups (Bailinho), contests for shop windows decoration and the Flower Exhibition held in the “Largo da Restauração”.
If you want to see the alternative flower festival join us in one of our magical Madeira levada walks and you will see fantastic and colorful flowers along the way with an certified mountain guide.
