Parades and Festivals


La Feria de las Flores (the Festival of the Flowers) is the most important festival in Antioquia. It takes place in MedellĂ­in in early August and has been celebrated every year since 1957. The festival includes parades of antique cars, of silleteros (flower carriers), and of horses.

Other festivals are the International Poetry Festival (June) (which received the 2006 Right Livelihood Award ), the Parade of Myths and Legends (December) and Colombia Moda (a fashion industry event).
