Flower Festival Madeira 2017

12998712_10154105143234494_1511779271718504897_n

Flower Festival Madeira 2017 – May 4th to 21st

Floral species originating in many parts of the world bloom in Madeira, as the island meets specific climatic conditions that allow species from both tropical and cold regions to flourish.

The Flower Festival is a tribute to spring, and the celebration of metamorphosis and rebirth, fertility and the abundance of the flowers that colour, perfume and inebriate the surrounding environment and that give value and take the good name of this tourist destination across borders. Find out more about what to expect from the Madeira Flower Festival:

Saturday
On Saturday morning the Children’s Parade takes place, in which hundreds of children, dressed for the occasion, parade to Praça do Município to build a beautiful flower mural symbolically named “Wall of Hope”.
This initiative, which has been held for over three decades, combines childhood innocence and the delicacy of flowers in a ceremony calling for peace in the world. Each child takes a flower and the ceremony usually culminates with a release of doves and a children’s show.

Friday to Sunday
On Sunday afternoon, the streets of Funchal city centre are once again filled with music, colour and soft aromas, with the sumptuous float parade, which harmoniously combines numerous floral species with blooming decorations full of creativity. The Flower Festival Float Parade, held since 1979, is one of the most striking and eagerly anticipated events of the entire festival, for tourists and residents alike. This event is known for the magnificence and splendour of the floats and costumes of the hundreds of participants, mostly children, richly adorned with numerous, varied and magnificent floral species, parading along a planned route to the sound of festive musical themes and performing both simple and elaborate choreographies.The Flower Festival is also a cultural event. Tradition is particularly associated with the event, whether through the performances of folk groups, or through the construction of the beautiful floral carpets. At the same time, homage is paid to flowers at the magnificent Flower Exhibition and the city is animated with music concerts and variety shows.
Other initiatives that are included on the schedule:

Flower Market
The flower market contributes to raise public awareness to the countless ornamental and floral species on the island. Visitors and locals can buy them in a picturesque setting.

Flower Exhibition and Workshops

The Flower Exhibition is held in the centre of Funchal, at Praça do Povo. This exhibition is an extension of the exhibit held at the former Ateneu Comercial of Funchal. This unique flower display shows the finest flowers grown with much care and devotion, all around Madeira. The flowers in display are judged under various categories and the best are awarded prizes by a panel of experts.

In addition the Praça do Povo will also be the centre stage of several workshops and crafts exhibits.

Flower Carpets and Decorations
The abundance of Madeiran flora has greatly contributed to the establishing of this art form. This traditional creation of flower carpets thrives a little bit throughout the island and had its origins in the decoration of religious processions. Due to its undeniable beauty and detail, for the past several years, the flower carpets have been reproduced on the streets for the Flower Festival, establishing alongside the floral sculptures, a major contribution to the magnificence of the city’s decorations, as their careful construction is shared and admired by visiting tourists. These wonderful pieces of floral art are displayed in the central walkways of Avenida Arriaga.MadeiraAuto Parade
The “Madeira Auto Parade” is an exclusive event that integrates for the first time the Flower Festival festivities. Organized by the Association “The Classic Motor Exhibition” – ACME and the Clube Carocha da Madeira, this enterprise intends to join both the glamour of classic vehicles and motorcycles, alongside with the flowers of Madeira, incorporating one of the largest exhibitions, and national restoration and elegance contests, an opportunity to admire some of the best vehicles and auto parts, which will be on display at Avenida Francisco Sá Carneiro.
The vehicles registered in this parade, will circulate in pairs, an exhibition that will promote moments of pure entertainment, colour and beauty promoted by various musical bands and extras, dressed in costumes inspired by the flowers of Madeira.

Desde Madeira con Amor

Madeira, una pequeña isla montañosa en la costa oeste de África, tiene un encanto que es difícil de describir. Combina el charm de una pequeña ciudad Portuguesa con la extraña geografía de un mundo de fantasía, donde típicas casas de techos de teja se cubren por neblina que desciende de las frondosas montañas.

En la cima de Madeira, sobrevolando la ciudad de Funchal y con vistas espectaculares a la bahía y al agitado mar Atlántico, se encuentra Casa Velha do Palheiro.

As part of a project for Geocaching enthusiasts entitled “Tour Around Madeira Island”, 45 “caches” are being placed in beautiful locations all over
the island, and Palheiro’s viewpoint overlooking Funchal Bay is one of them!

São um dos Jardins mais bonitos da Iha da Madeira, e hoje fazem parte do Palheiro Estate, o qual inclui um Hotel, um Campo de Golfe, o Palheiro Village e as estufas de orquídeas da Florialis.
A propriedade primeiro pertenceu ao Conde Carvalhal em 1801. Aqui ele construiu uma estância de caça com uma entrada para carruagens com 200 plátanos e árvores exóticas importadas de todo o mundo.

Em 1885 a propriedade foi adquirida por John Burden Blandy. A família continuou o desenvolvimento dos Jardins após 1900 e foi Mildred Blandy quem introduziu muitas plantas, incluindo proteas da África do Sul. Em 1997 a casa do Conde foi reconstruída e convertida num hotel conhecido como a Casa Velha do Palheiro, membro da Relais & Chateau. Os Jardins têm uma localização privilegiada acima do Funchal e são ricos em cor e aroma. Aqui encontrará uma colecção magnífica de camélias começada pelo Conde, árvores centenárias, o Jardim das Rosas, criado por Christina Blandy e uma infinidade de outras flores e trepadeiras.

Este verdadeiro Éden está dividido em várias áreas: O Jardim principal, o Sunken Garden, o Ribeiro do Inferno, o Jardim das Rosas, o Jardim da Senhora e a zona da Casa de Chá, onde se pode ver uma araucária do Brasil e um magnífico metrosideros da Nova Zelândia. Podem-se ainda admirar lagos com nenúfares, uma curiosa família de galinhas esculpidas em buxo e belos canteiros de flores roxas e alaranjadas.
A preservação deste autêntico tesouro natural tem o cunho pessoal de Christina Blandy, coadjuvada por uma equipa mista de dedicados jardineiros.

The gardens at “Quinta do Palheiro” are famous not only for the variety of plants that grow there but for the beauty of their setting in the hills to the east of Funchal, the capital of Madeira.

Madeira has long been called the “Garden Isle” and it seems that almost anything will grow in its fertile soil.

In Funchal many tropical plants have found a home and the visitor can see Hibiscus and Bougainvillea in flower almost all the year round along with Jacaranda, Spathodeas, Erythrinas and Bauhinias in their season.

The Palheiro gardens are situated at about 500 meters above sea level. The original owner, the Conde de Carvalhal, planted many trees on the estate and laid the foundation to the Camellia collection; some of his early plantings can still be seen today.

The land first belonged to the Count of Carvalhal back in 1801. Here he built a hunting lodge with a carriage way entrance of 200 plane trees and imported exotic trees from all over the world. In 1885 the estate was purchased by John Blandy.
The family continued the development of the Gardens in the 1900s and it was Mildred Blandy who introduced many plants including proteas from South Africa.In 1997 the Counts’s house was renovated and converted to a hotel known as the Casa Velha do Palheiro, a Relais & Chateau member.

The Gardens have a privileged location above Funchal and are rich in colour and scent. Here you will find a magnificent collection of camellias started by the Count, centennial trees, the rose garden created by Christina Blandy and a myriad of other flowers and climbers.

This Eden is divided into several areas: The Main Garden, Sunken Garden, Ribeirodo Inferno, Rose Garden, Lady’s Garden and the Tea-House area where you may admire a Brazilian auracaria and a The land first belonged to the Count of Carvalhal back in 1801.

The preservation of this natural treasure has the personal touch of Christina Blandy and a team of dedicated gardeners.
