Held every 10 years in the Netherlands, Floriade is a huge world horticultural exhibition and the country’s biggest, most spectacular gardening show.
Floriade 2022 will see the return of the festival, when it will open for six months in Almere, near Amsterdam, with a futuristic eco-theme of ‘growing green cities’.
When is Floriade 2022 and what can I see there?
Starting on 14th April and running until 9th October 2022, the expo will feature 40 unique and fascinating exhibitions inspired by the idea of bringing the countryside into the city.
Visitors to the Floriade Expo will be treated to the sights and smells of some 3,000 trees, shrubs, perennials, creepers, hydrophytes and flower bulbs at this truly unique exhibition.
As well as a spectacular, huge greenhouse, there will be a cable car taking you over the park, presentations on sustainability and a programme of arts and culture events.
What can I learn at Floriade 2022?
The focus of Floriade 2022 is on imagining sustainable, healthy city living for the future. The species of plants on display have been chosen for their special qualities, and how they can contribute to a green city space in terms of biodiversity, air purification, food production and city climate management.
Functioning as a ‘living laboratory, Floriade 2022 will be a place to experiment with and discover new eco-technologies - from food and health to green energy and architecture. The whole site will be an exciting interactive experience, encouraging you to see, smell and taste the future of green cities.
