Come discover delicate scents during the ExpoRose

For many decades, the city of Grasse has been honouring the most delicate flower: the rose. This annual event puts the emphasis on all the facets of the rose. The City is even decorated with thousands of roses exposed in different locations. Rose gardens and yards, art and culture, cooking: come discover all the options offered by this exceptional flower. In addition to its 45th edition, the event is happening at the same time as the celebration of the bicentennial of Napoleon passing through Grasse. It is a great opportunity for you to stay at the Parc Saint James camping “Le Sourire”, only a few kilometers from Grasse, to attend a unique cultural event. During the whole ExpoRose, you will have the chance to discover and rediscover the queen of all flowers through many activities.

A very busy schedule

The international exposition of roses is one of the main events of the ExpoRose. You will have the chance to discover many varieties of roses, in addition to the delicate Centifolia, to which Grasse owes its reputation. You will also have the possibility to admire an open-air nursery area and to participate to or attend a garden rose bush competition. Not to be missed are various workshops on floral art, on the making of crystallised flowers or on the preparation of rose “confit”. If you go camping with your family, your children will enjoy workshops specially adapted to them, like the origami workshop, the tale reading sessions and many other activities. Many products related to the rose are exposed at the craft market: candies, perfurmes, soaps, beauty products and many more. It is also a great way to meet rose professionals during the festivities planned: diffuser-perfumers, designers, horticultural organizations. You can follow a flowered path from the Cours Honoré Cresp to the international museum of perfumery, via the Heritage House and the oratorical chapel, and arrange yourself your own bouquet of roses. There are many other activities to discover during the ExpoRose.
