OUR 2020 THEME
Isle of Man Flower Festival is a fully fledged partner of UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man. We're excited to be exploring links with UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man and our theme for the 2020 Festival reflects the benefits of a healthy environment on our well-being and the positive impact nature has on our daily life.
The Island is the first entire country to be awarded the honour of UNESCO Biosphere status reflecting our unique environment of a special place for people and nature.
Flower Festival is proud to be a UNESCO Biosphere Isle of Man partner and feel it's a natural fit with our ethos of celebrating the beauty of all things floral.
