Locarno Camellia exhibition



From to

The 26th edition of the renowned Ticino exhibition will take place from 19 to 23 March 2025 at the Camellia Park in Locarno. The exhibition, with great attention to detail, features more than 200 varieties of camellias. The heart of the exhibition is the splendid Camellia Park in Locarno, which covers an area of 10,000 square metres on the shores of Lake Maggiore. It is part of the 'Gardens of Switzerland' circuit and bears the 'Garden of excellence' label, awarded by the International Camellia Society to the most beautiful gardens with the most significant plant collections. The garden is home to more than a thousand plants and almost as many varieties of camellias, which, between March and April, offer themselves to the visitor's gaze at their moment of maximum flowering and beauty. For Camelie Locarno, the park will also host floral installations, a café and the traditional market dedicated to selling plants. As every year, there is a programme of supporting events that includes the traditional camellia concerts.
