From 6 am until 18h, more than a hundred horticulturists animate this sumptuous colorful market whose custom dates back to 1825. In Tournai, in April 2018.
Our big flower market on Good Friday is a spring festival, a popular floral event and, in the opinion of specialists, one of the most prestigious and successful markets in the country.
The origin of this one goes back to 1825, since, every year, about seventy florist exhibitors and nurseries come back to present us, in the framework of a contest, their traditional productions but also sometimes plants recently appeared on the market.
The 3 kilometre walk of exhibition is truly a visual treat!
The productions are placed by category, the flowers and flowering plants are mainly exposed in the rue Royale, while the shrubs and plants to be transplanted are avaialable to buy on the quays Saint-Brice and the place of the quai Dumon.
From noon on the kiosk on rue Royale, the concerts traditionally follow one after another.
At 4 pm we can attend the concert given by the Royal Harmony of the Fire Brigade Corps.
