What started as a small event that was once celebrated in the City Hall in Girona in 1954, has turned into an international festival. The event consisted in organizing a first edition of what they called “Concurso exposición Provincial de Flores al Saló de Descans del Teatre Municipal”, the success that the exposition had led them to celebrate it year after year until today.
The festival grows in space each year. 1979 was the first year that the event was celebrated under the name “Asociación de los amigos de las flores y los jardines”. By the time goes by, the neighbors of Girona have been opening their gardens to the public during the festival.
