The Flower Carpet - Brussels - Brussels - Belgium

11th - 15th August 2022

Although the 2021 edition of the carpet of flowers was cancelled the event is scheduled to happen in 2022. 

Two events — the Flowertime and Flower Carpet—occur biennially alternating with one another. Every August, a team of florists brings magic to the centre of Brussels: in the even years they assemble the Flower Carpet on the Grand-Place, and in the odd years the Town Hall becomes the focus of the Flowertime celebration.

The Grand-Place in Brussels is covered with a flower carpet of begonias. The carpet of 77 m x 24 m is composed by about 120 volunteers, with nearly 1 million begonias in less than 4 hours.

The 2022 theme of the flower carpet is Mexico. The Flower Carpet is dedicated to Guanajuato, a Mexican region with a particularly rich floral culture and tradition.

The event has it's opening night on the preceeding Thursday, 11th August 2022 at 10pm with the exhibition on the 12th, 13th and 14th and 15th August 2022.
 
This is a great time to visit the bustling city of Brussels and all the delights it has to offer.
 
This event brings visitors from all over the world to admire the display on show in the Grand-Place, an spectacle that certainly catches your interest!
 
Officially, the first Floral Carpet in its present-day form was created in 1971 on the Grand-Place by the landscape architect E. Stautemans, but in fact, it was the culmination of a whole series created in various towns in Flanders. The beauty and diversity of all these carpets is largely due to their main component, the famous begonia. Chosen above all for its qualities of robustness, resistance to bad weather and strong sunshine, the begonia guarantees the long life and freshness of the carpet. This event happens every two years.
