Ready to welcome spring? Garden enthusiasts will be pampered as one of the city’s largest flower fairs comes back with a bang! The 34th Garden Tourism Festival 2021 in the Garden of the Five Senses will not be a normal three-day affair. It’s going to be a three week extravaganza!
Organized by Delhi Tourism in partnership with the Delhi Government, the festival will encourage residents to indulge in a variety of flowering and non-flowering plants. Garden enthusiasts can enjoy the #ColoursOfNature theme on the 22-hectare venue with over fifty thousand flowering plants! The huge space is also intended to make it a lively and refreshing, but socially distant experience for visitors.
An exquisite display of some of the finest plants, hanging baskets, bonsai and many more seasonal and exclusive flowers will please nature lovers. In addition, the organizers hold an annual garden bazaar and horticultural workshops for those with a green thumb. Flowers, plants, organic products, medicinal plants, garden accessories, etc. are sold in the bazaar.
The event will also have competitions in different categories, accompanied by cultural programs to give visitors a healthy experience. A variety of food stalls will also be set up, serving delicacies from around the country while you enjoy the colorful surroundings. Anyone planning a visit can use the free shuttle service from the nearest underground station.
