Expo Rose : An International Rose Exhibition In Grasse
Every year, the city of Grasse honors the queen of flowers by organizing Expo Rose, the largest European exhibition of cut roses. For a few days, the Côte d'Azur capital of perfumes is adorned with thousands of roses and offers many activities around this flower.
An ode to the rose
The Côte d'Azur capital of perfumes, Grasse is also the place where the delicate Centifolia rose is grown, used by the most prestigious perfumers.
It was therefore only natural that the city of Grasse pay tribute to the rose by dedicating an annual event to it. Expo Rose has been the meeting place for all rose enthusiasts since 1970.
On this occasion, rose professionals (designers, distributors and producers, horticultural organizations) offer the public several days of festivities around the queen of flowers. Not only is the city adorned with thousands of roses displayed in bouquets of 60 to 300 flowers, but it also hosts various events in its historic center and in different exhibition areas.
Expo Rose gives an appointment to all rose lovers from May 13 to 15, 2022 for a 50th edition on the theme of the 'great classics of cinema.

- the international rose exhibition (under a big top, Cours Honoré Cresp)
- a nursery area in the open air
- an area dedicated to the garden rose competition
- numerous animations (workshops, visits and shows) proposed by the city of Grasse and Grasse associations.
In particular, you will be able to try:

- culinary workshops.
Some 25,000 roses will adorn the fountains and gardens of the historic center. 8,500 roses will be on display and 13,000 garden roses will be for sale.
