Aalsmeer Flower Festival is an awe-inspiring display of flowers and plants.

For two days, flowers and plants are exhibited in ways you’ve never seen before, integrated into art installations, design masterpieces and even juxtaposed with food! 

At the fifth edition of this dazzling flower festival, you can enjoy the fantastical sights on June 16 and 17 from 11am until 5pm.

The North Holland town of Aalsmeer is located 13km southwest of Amsterdam and has been dubbed the flower capital of the world, because the largest flower auction in the world is in Aalsmeer. The festival takes place in two locations: the Bloemenlust which was formerly a flower auction venue and is now also known as “The Beach”, as well as at the horticultural museum of Aalsmeer.

Aalsmeer Flower Festival Programme

Aalsmeer Flower Festival brings you two days full of flowers!

There will be demonstrations, workshops and special exhibitions taking place throughout both days. There will be live music, food and drink, so visitors can enjoy the festival atmosphere all day long. 

Two highly esteemed Japanese flower stylists will participate in a “flower stylist battle” to see who comes up with the best flower arrangement.

In Bloemenlust, there will also be child-friendly activities and workshops happening at the festival.

In the horticultural museum there will be a flower auction, as well as an exhibition of the newest variety of roses, meanwhile in the greenhouses, visitors can enjoy many of the oldest varieties which are still grown there.
