Feria de las Flores (August)

For more than 60 years the city of Medellín has been hosting a colourful festival every year at the beginning of August: the Feria de los Flores (Flower Festival).

It is one of the country’s most important folklore festivals.

The objective?

To highlight the “silletera” culture, the region’s flower growers, usually from Santa Elena, a town near Medellin.

Concerts, horse fairs, a festival of orchestras …

For about ten days, the whole town vibrates to the rhythm of this colourful folklore.

The highlight of the show: hundreds of silleteros marching on their backs carrying wooden constructions (silletas) weighing up to 60 kg decorated with floral works. A date that will leave you breathless!
