Flower lovers can once again indulge themselves in the European capital. The City of Brussels, the non-profit organisation Tapis de Fleurs de Bruxelles and Floraliën are joining forces for the first edition of "Brussels in Bloom". This unprecedented event will take you on a floral journey through the streets around Brussels' Grand Place.

This summer, the Brussels flower tradition will be maintained. Over the past few months, the organisers have redoubled their efforts and creativity to offer the public a unique event. Exclusively this year, the Flower Carpet will be transformed into a genuine floral sky with a thousand and one colours! The Grand Place, the balcony of the City Hall, the Manneken Pis district and the Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert will be covered in petals from 15 August to 5 September.

An original, Covid-safe alternative

"With Brussels in Bloom, we are offering an original alternative for flower lovers. Moreover, by spreading the event over several weeks and in several locations, we are ensuring that health regulations are respected so that the public can stroll around without having to worry. We are delighted that cultural life and events can finally restart and the City of Brussels wishes to give it its full support", explains Delphine Houba, Alderwoman for Culture and Big Events of the City of Brussels and President of the Brussels Flower Carpet association.
A nod to Flowertime

As with Flowertime, the biennial flower event held in Brussels City Hall, the organisers of the prestigious Floraliën (the Ghent Floralies) are also involved in Brussels in Bloom.

Pieter Toebaert, general manager of Floraliën: "Floraliën is happy to support this initiative. For the opening weekend, we will be working with a number of renowned florists to decorate various parts of the route around the Grand-Place with fresh flowers and plants. This will be a nice nod to Flowertime's floral artwork. We are also keeping a close eye on trends in floral art, and for the longer-lasting outdoor decorations, the public will have the opportunity to enjoy creations that combine artificial flowers with a genuine natural look and natural materials."
