Jersey Battle of Flowers

What began over a century ago as a ‘one-off’ celebration to mark a Royal Coronation has since grown to become not only one of the largest floral carnivals in Europe but a piece of Jersey’s history.

In celebration of the Coronation of King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra the Island of Jersey decided to stage a parade on 9th August 1902.

The event was so successful that organisers decided to repeat it the following year – and so began a summer tradition, which continues to this very day.
