To answer that, keep reading, but first, let me tell you:

1. What is the Madeira Flower Festival?

The Madeira Flower Festival is an annual event that attracts hundreds of spectators worldwide and is one of the most beautiful events you may ever see!

This glorious Flower Festival celebrates the start of Spring and the lush growth of plants, which is more intense in Madeira because of the subtropical climate.

The preparations begin many months before, with the festival theme, fabrics and flower choice and the design of the costumes, flower carpets, and floats. After that, a lot of work goes into making the decorations, costumes, and the dancer’s training.

How do we celebrate?

Madeira is very busy for most of the season. The celebration starts on Saturday. Thousands of children gather in Praça do Município Square to take part in the “construction” of the flower wall — the Wall of Hope. On the second day, there is a magnificent parade with dancers dressed up in flower costumes and a display of dozens of allegorical floats covered with a sea of flowers and foliage. It is stunning!

Other activities during this time include making flower carpets in the streets, folklore performances, flower exhibitions, workshops, classical music concerts, and a street market.

One weekend after the Grand Parade, Flower Groups perform in specific locations with stands. Usually, there is a classic car parade, still in context with the flower theme.

There is a contest for the best shop window decoration with flowers, flower exhibitions placed in strategic locations in many villages around the island and flower displays in the hotels.

 

Come and experience the amazing Madeira Flower Festival. You can’t miss it.

2. When is the Flower Festival?

Because of the pandemic, the dates have changed from 2020 to 2021 but will continue as usual two weeks after Easter.

This year’s Funchal Flower Festival will be held from May 5th to 29th, with the theme “Madeira, the Magic of Flowers”.

  • The two main parades are always held on the first weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and should not be missed.
  • The children’s parade and the Wall of Hope are on Saturday 7th, from 10:00.
  • The main parade is on Sunday the 8th at 16:30.

3. What time does the parade begin and finish? How long does the parade last?

The Sunday parade starts at 16:30 and ends around 18:30. Depending on the number of participants (around 1500), it lasts about two and a half hours to three hours from one end to the other (1.5 kilometres)

4. How long before do you need to find a position to stand? Is there a bus we can catch? Will taxis be working?

Kindly note that there are no standing places, so everyone must remain seated.

If you are unsure when to walk into the city on Sunday to see the parade and do not want to miss it, you need to arrive 30 minutes earlier. It will depend on your hotel’s location and the transportation you will use to get there, to understand when you should leave.

Some hotels offer courtesy buses, so ask about the times at the reception.

There are frequent buses on the main road in the hotel area. Any bus marked “Centro” will take you to the city centre. Before and during large events, public transportation is often cancelled or diverted, and some roads close during the parade. Ask reception for the time and location of the bus stops.

It may be challenging to get a taxi or bus to return to the hotel because many people will want to catch one after the parade.

Events Madeira - Funchal Flower Festival - will we be able to buy tickets in town and if so where? where if necessary, do we get tickets? would anyone know, please, where tickets for the stands at the flower festival can be obtained beforehand, perhaps via the Internet?

5. Where would be the best place to get a good view of the parade?

There are only two options to watch it on Sunday afternoon:

  1. Comfortably seated on the grandstand.
  2. Standing with the crowds, free, with the inconvenience of having people in front of you limiting visibility and fatigue because of the time standing;

Note: please check number 9 on this post for the COVID-19 measures update.

Best place to be? Anywhere along the route. There are stand seats at various points between the Empresa de Eletricidade da Madeira (near the Cable car station, in the Old Town), where it starts, Avenida do Mar (seafront) and Avenida Sá Carneiro (near the Cristiano Ronaldo Museum), where it ends.

6. Madeira Flower Festival tickets: where can I book a seat for the flower grandstand? How much is a ticket?

To attend the Great Allegoric Flower Parade, you need to purchase tickets for the stands. These are available in several places:

  • Tourist Information Office in the centre of Funchal, but they will soon sell it out. Schedule: 2nd to 7th: 9:00 – 20:00 | 8th: 09:00 – 15:30).
  • Associação de Animação Geringonça: bancadasgeringonca@gmail.com
  • Retoiça – Associação Cultural, Desportiva e Recreativa: madeiratribune@gmail.com
  • Associação de Batucada da Madeira: batucadamadeira@gmail.com
  • Associação FT — Fitness Team: associacaoft@hotmail.com
  • If requested in advance, your hotel may arrange for you.

It costs 30 Euros per seat and includes a bottle of water and a hat.

Your ticket will have a stand and seat number, which will help you find the exact spot where you need to go.

Tip: Book in advance.

7. Where do we need to go to see flower carpets and the wall of flowers?

They lay out the flower carpets along the Avenida Arriaga, between the fountain roundabout at the bottom of Santa Catarina Park and the Cathedral. If you encounter any difficulty finding it, ask anyone for directions.

The Wall of Hope Ceremony usually begins at Avenida Arriaga and involves hundreds of children. They walk from there to the “Praça do Município”, where the parade ends.

The “Praça do Município” (Municipal Square) and the “Largo do Colégio” (Colégio Square) are both the same square with two different names.

Events Madeira -Flower Festival Madeira How can I find out what's going on where and when? I would also like to know the actual programme of events with times, so we do not miss anything. Are there things to look at in town besides the parade? Does anyone know how or where I can get a detailed itinerary for this year's flower festival?
