Madeira Island Flower Festival

Flower Festival

The Flower Festival, that takes place in spring when the flowers are at their best, has been one of the major attractions for both tourists and locals for a long time. This enchanting festival with a parade and floats through the streets of Funchal exhibits and perfumes the air with a multiplicity of floral species of the island, spreading a fairy tale ambiance all over the city centre. In every year’s edition each group presents their costumes accompanied with dances to a newly conceived choreography.

In the past few years a new addition was made to this event. At the ‘Largo do Colégio’ (Colégio Square) you will find the so-called ‘Wall of Hope’ – a wall where children place their own flowers with the objective of building a big flower wall symbolising the hope for a better and more peaceful world.
