The Floriade World Horticultural Expo has been held in Holland since 1960. It is organised every ten years in a different location. Through the years it has been held in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Zoetermeer. It was held in Venlo in 2012. The next Floriade will be organised in 2022 in Almere.
The Floriade is more than just a big bunch of flowers and plants put together. It is an extraordinary park in which the Dutch horticulture industry presents its latest trends and developments to the rest of the world. Topics range from water, sustainability, flowers, gardens and architecture to culinary delights. You will be amazed at just how dynamic the ‘green industry’ in Holland is!
Enjoy the Floriade
Above all, the Floriade is about enjoyment. Walk through fairytale gardens and tropical greenhouses, and past lovely ponds and architectural wonders. The Floriade also devotes ample attention to art, theatre and music performances as well as culinary workshops. So make a note in your diary: the next instalment of the Floriade will start in the spring of 2022.
