Flower Festival and Wine Festival! September in Madeira!

A city where flowers are all around you, from flower-covered sidewalks to a wall made entirely of flowers — known locally as the Wall of Hope — and also including a procession that runs through the city streets. The Flower Festival is full of splendid visuals and takes place in Funchal, celebrating Madeira’s great diversity of flowers, which are a result of its subtropical climate.

Discover the Pearl of the Atlantic in a September full of activities and events, where the biggest highlight is the ever-popular Flower Festival, which covers the streets in an unmistakable color!! It is by no accident that Madeira is also affectionately known as the Flower Island!

This year the party takes place in September (as opposed to its normal dates in April/May), thus coinciding with another great island celebration: the Wine Festival!

With a very special place in the Madeiran events calendar, this party spreads a sense of great joy and a far-reaching colourful atmosphere. It also combines a party mood with a well-known procession! In addition to the celebrations, you will find the unmistakable tastes of more traditional flavors and musical performances, visitors will also be able to watch the grape harvest live!

The schedule for both events in 2020 is full of activities and events that are not to be missed. Parades, exhibits, concerts, themed dinners and even a film festival entirely devoted dedicated to wine-related movies! There are inviting options on a daily basis and all you have to do is decide on which one to attend!

See here for all the activities scheduled for the Flower Festival, and here for the ones prepared for the Madeira Wine Festival!

We must add that VidaMar Madeira has an unmissable offer waiting for you. Don’t miss out on visiting the island — one of the safest destinations in Europe — in a September packed with amazing things to see and do!

Just as the name implies, these resorts were meticulously thought out to be much more than just a beach holiday destination! The idea is based on a combination of “Life” (Vida) and “Sea” (Mar), which is paired with a complete offer of services, which range from modern Spas to high-quality restaurant options!
