The magic of camellias awaits you!

The renowned Ticino exhibition will take place this year for the 25th time from 20 to 24 March 2024 at the Parco delle Camelie in Locarno. The well-tended park is home to 1100 varieties of camellias.

The heart of the exhibition is the beautiful Parco delle Camelie 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 will be no lack of side events: the traditional camellia concerts!
