On 1 July Garden Festival will once again be held at the park of Rundāle Palace. This year’s theme of the Festival shall be hunting. Traditional activities – festive shows, concerts, fairs, creative workshops, orientation game – shall be supplemented by corresponding novelties: parade of hunting dogs, dog skill and elk calling demonstrations.
10 600 bulbous flowers were planted in the garden in 2016. Presently daffodils, hyacinths, primroses, hellebores are blooming; tulips shall bloom in the middle of May – 93 sorts of tulips are planted in an area of 94 m2. All plants are budding, magnolia slowly opens its blossoms. We are glad that the plants have not been significantly affected by the Spring frosts.
Labyrinth with diameter of 20 m was formed in the Labyrinth Bosquet last year.
We would also like to remind that starting from 1 May Palace and the park shall be open until 6 p.m.
