The camellia festival in Locarno is the most important event of its kind in Europe, surpassed only by those in Japan, the native land of this magnificent flower.
A scientific exhibition held in the extraordinary Camellia Park with over 300 different varieties, beautifully arranged by experienced gardeners to highlight the rich botanic heritage of a flower which is ubiquitous in the private and public gardens of Locarno.
The program also includes numerous other activities, cultural highlights, a flower market and books.
During the exhibition a convenient shuttle service is available to take visitors from the Locarno railway station to the Camellia Park.
