About Jersey Battle of Flowers

This event is now cancelled for 2020

One of Jersey's most popular events, the Battle of Flowers is an opportunity for Jersey to show off its very best floats, performers and dancers. With a large number of locals taking part and many visitors coming to Jersey for 'The Battle' year after year, Battle weekend is a treat for all.

The origins of the Battle lie in 1902, during the coronation of Kind Edward Vll and Queen Alexandra. Islanders decided to hold a parade in their honour, with horse-drawn floats covered in flowers taking to the waterfront streets of Jersey. There was a tradition of picking flowers from the floats and throwing them to the audience; this quickly developed into flowers being thrown back, and the 'Battle of the Flowers' was born.

The festival took a break during the Second World War and German occupation, but was revived during the 1950s and has gone from strength to strength ever since. Today the Battle of Flowers is a community event that involves the whole island and attracts many visitors year after year. Floats of all sizes compete for a variety of prizes and honours, with the large float class winner being awarded the Prix d’Honneur.

The Battle of Flowers takes place during early August every year.
