GRAND DAY PARADE
Fri 11th Aug | 5pm (gates open 3pm)
Undoubtedly one of the most spectacular floral carnivals in Europe. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the afternoon parade as exhibits ranging from 12ft to 45ft perform around the arena. Covered in flowers, mainly Chrysanthemums, the floats are accompanied by musicians, dancers, and bands, creating memorable carnival magic.
LET BATTLE COMMENCE!
For the first time in many years the dates of the Battle of Flowers will change. As time moves on and Thursday is no longer a traditional half day trading in the Island, it is important to attract as many spectators as possible to the parades.
Starting on a Friday at 17.00 will allow more of those working the opportunity to attend.
Sat 12th Aug | 9pm (gates open 7pm)
Carnival comes to Victoria Avenue at night. The same floats that featured in the day parade are out in force again, festooned with thousands of illuminations to give a truly magical experience. The festivities come to a close with our Grand Finale, kindly sponsored by Butterfield, and set high over
St Aubin’s bay. The atmosphere is electric.
For a sneak preview of the exhibits in the build sheds as they prepare for Battle - Tuesday the 8th, Wednesday the 9th August or Thursday the 10th of August, take a look at our map for locations.
