Floriade Expo 2022

  • Floriade, an international horticultural exposition is held just once every 10 years in the Netherlands! In 2022 the event will be held between April 14 and October 9, 2022 in the Dutch city of Almere, just 35 km from Amsterdam, making it accessible to river cruisers and visitors alike.

  • For those who think this is simply a boring collection of flowers and shrubbery, think again: Floriade Expo is elaborate, featuring attractions, tasting sessions, arts, cultural events, conferences, workshops, exhibitions, and gardens throughout the site all of which will revolve around four central themes: Green the City, Feed the City, Healthy the City, and Energize the City.

  • What’s more, over 40 countries are scheduled to participate in this celebration of green. National pavilions will present plants, flowers, and cultural offerings from their home countries, along with local innovations and solutions. The exposition will even have its own cable car offering a birds-eye view of the entire Floriade park.
