2015 Aibonito Flower Festival

The dates of the festival for 2015 are June 26 to July 5.

Aibonito Flower Festival

Every year, the town of Aibonito hosts the largest plant show & sale on the island. It features flower & plant displays, a large section for plant sales, live local music shows (of course) and food kiosks.There are also some rides and games for the kids.

My favorite part is the rows and rows of booths selling all kinds of plants — orchids, fruit trees, vegetable plants, heliconias, gingers, hibiscus … just to name a few. I look forward to this event all year and it is now that time of year again!

In 2015, the Aibonto Flower Festival (Festival de Flores de Aibonito) will be held from June 26 through July 5. This is the 47th anniversary of the Flower Festival!

Aibonito Flower Festival

Finding the Festival is not too difficult — just follow the cars! It is a hugely popular event. This is one of the town’s claims to fame — they even have a permanent Flower Festival Area, behind the Coliseo los Polluelos de Aibonito. This is where all the "official" sales booths, entertainment and food kiosks are set up. In addition to that, you will be able to find small vendors set up selling everything from plants to perfume, flowers to food all along the roads leading to the park.

Most people go on the weekends and in the afternoon. So, if you want to avoid the biggest crowds, plan on going mid-week in the morning.

If you are a tourist from the States, just keep in mind, the USDA does conduct mandatory luggage inspection at the airport. So if you plan on buying plants to take back the the States, you might want to review the Predeparture Passenger Baggage Inspection Notice for Travelers from Puerto Rico to the US Mainland (PDF file) regarding what plants you are allowed to take home with you.

Entertainment Schedule for 2015

The organizers (Sanabria Events) don’t always provide a schedule listing what times each of the live shows will be taking place, but they have provided this list of which performers are supposed to have shows on which days. The shows are generally are late morning and in the afternoon.

First, I love, love, love, your website. I am repeatedly impressed with the detailed, well organized and clearly presented information. And the quality ! Thank you for the website. I find myself referring to it extensively for updated information as I plan my next visit to La Isla de Encanta! I used to live in Viejo San Juan when I worked for the US NPS and did some island exploring, but never enough -- there is so much to see and do year round. Maybe when I retire I'll have more time... I did make it to the Aibonito Flower Festival when I lived in the island in the late '90s and it was spectacular. I'll never forget the experience of driving through the arbors of blooming Flamboyan on the windy two lane highway! Dios Mio! I love Puerto Rico! Anyway, thanks mucho for this incredible website!

We (PRDayTrips) don't do tours or anything like group transportation. You would need to contact someone who is involved with the Flower Festival or transportation. Try the Caguas Mayor's Office, or the Flower Festival organizers. They might have an idea. Or maybe even the Botanical Garden in Caguas....maybe they know a group of flower enthusiasts in your area organizing a trip.

I saw that TicketPop is selling $5 entrance tickets to the Flower Festival. However, with commission, and tax, their ticket comes to almost $10 each. Do they sell tickets at the gate/door for the Flower Festival or is it only available through Ticket Pop? Thanks

Comment by Ed on 24 Jun 2015

They always have tickets available at the door with no extra commission. Maybe a line to buy tickets, but they are really pretty good about getting people in quickly.

Does anyone know if small pet dogs are allowed in the festival?

Comment by Randy Pringle on 25 Jun 2015

I don't know if they are "allowed" but I know I have seen some being carried around in bags.
