Flower Festival - Festas do Povo

Campo Maior, in the Alentejo Region of Portugal, has a Festival that is one of a kind, hard to find anywhere else and the reason is what the flowers are made from….

Also known as the Festival of the People, this flower event is all made not of natural flowers, but paper flowers! Lots and lots of paper flowers of all kinds and shapes – daisies, tulips, roses, and so on! They are set all around the city streets, houses and squares and mainly in the fortified city’s historic center.

In the 2004 festival 20 tons of paper were used and the people of Campo Maior decorated more than 85 streets with this beautiful paper flowers that are handmade. In 2011, more than 100 streets were decorated and the festival attracted people from all over.

In fact, the Festival takes place only when the locals decide to put their joint efforts on for this event, that’s why it is also known as Festival of the People. It takes the good will and commitment from all of them to make their city a very special during a week, usually in August or September.

As it is not a cyclic event, it is hard to know but according to the local association (http://www.festasdopovo.pt/) that organizes the festival, a 2015 festival is being scheduled.

But not only Campo Maior has a festival with flowers as the main theme. There is another festival of the kind in Redondo. And lets not forget the well known festival Festa da Flor in Madeira. And in Barcelo a Battle of flowers takes place every year.
