Floriade 2022 Almere
The Floriade is an international garden festival and exhibition that is held every ten years in the Netherlands. The World Expo Floriade Amsterdam Almere is listed by the World Horticultural Expositions, by the International Association of Horticultural Producers and hence recognised by the Bureau International des Expositions.
The Floriade is coordinated by the Dutch Horticultural Council. This council aims to strengthen the image of the Dutch horticulture and to promote exports.
The next Floriade will be held in 2022 and has as theme “Growing Green Cities”. Its location is just outside Amsterdam in the city of Almere. It will be open from springtime until autumn.
The first Floriade was held in 1960 in the city of Rotterdam. The Euromast and the surrounding park around it are still there. In the past decades the international garden festival and exhibition was held in
- Zoetermeer (1992)
- Haarlemmermeer (2002)
- Venlo (2012)
