Flower and garden fairs

In April comes the hand of spring, the season of rebirth that will last until June that is when it gives way to summer.

At this time of year the temperatures begin to increase progressively, the days lengthen, the landscapes change color, many flowers are born, the animals begin to mate...

For all this, spring is known as a synonym of life, youth, beauty and vitality. Also, in the artistic field, this is considered the season of love and joy, as exemplified by the phrase "spring, blood alters".

In this outburst of the senses and nature coincide many celebrations commemorating the beginning of this time of year, which are characterized by a significant presence of flowers.

Some of the festivities that are organized in our territory with this motive are the fair Time of Flowers to Girona, the Santpedor Flower Fair in Santpedor, which also celebrates a winter edition or Flowers and Violas of Palafrugell.

Girona, Temps de Flors

Girona, time of flowers If we go to the north of Catalonia, Girona gives off the smell of flowers.

In this town, annually, the contest Girona, Time of flowers that already has a consolidated trajectory, since it was organized for the first time in 1954, is celebrated.

Its origins, then, are in a flower contest that began in the sixties and that consisted of a floral exhibition shown in a specific space. However, this exhibition, in 1992, was opened throughout the old town of Girona, giving rise to floral itineraries for the squares, streets, corners of the old part of the city.

This contest, held every May, lasts one week and hosts the traditional floral exhibition. Thus, Girona adorns with floral motifs, from the streets and parks to the courtyards and gardens of private noble houses that, normally, are closed to the public. In addition, nowadays, it has become a transversal act, which, for example, welcomes the initiatives of the merchants who dare to decorate their windows with floral motifs or the hoteliers who decorate the rooms. Also, it should be noted that some restaurants have created a menu that integrates edible flowers.

As for the name of the celebration, this is due to a slogan coined by the poet José Tarrés in 1993.

Santpedor in bloom

Santpedor, in the Bages was the first municipality to join the group of Villas Floridas. For this reason, the municipality maintains a good involvement with the proposals related to flowers and floral ornementació.

Santpedor in bloom

Specifically, the town celebrates two fairs linked to the floral world. During the first weekend of May, Santpedor in bloom takes place . Two intense days full of activities in which entities, shops and neighbors revitalize the old town with a wide catalog of floral ornamentation in different spaces, markets, tastings, guided tours and activities with the flower in the center of all eyes.

The event also has a winter version that is celebrated in December, it is the Santpedor fair in winter blossom. The old quarter is full of art and floral ornamentation and experiences in gastronomy, adapted to this season. Among the proposals offered, a Christmas market with firs, Christmas flowers and Christmas decoration products stand out.

Sant Jordi, Flowers and Violas

Feast of roses in Palafrugell by Sant Jordi Since 2011 in Palafrugell have joined the two parties related to flowers to welcome the spring and the good weather: San Jorge and Flores and sing.

To do this, they decorate patios and streets of the town to fill them with flowers, smells, colors, music, shows, books, artistic decorations and tastings. In this way the party is lucid and complete by all, as there are activities for adults and children. In addition, the activities are not only dedicated to flowers, but also hold artistic and musical performances, tastings of culinary products for lovers of gastronomy or take a walk enjoying the colors of spring.
