WEST VILLAGE, NY — The L.E.A.F Festival of Flowers is returning to the Meatpacking District within the West Village in June.
The three-day affair will take place from June 10 to 12 with over one million flowers, a hundred florists, and floral installations as far as the eye can see.
"Last year's Festival of Flowers was one of the highlights of the year for the district, and we're thrilled to kick off summer of 2022 in Meatpacking again, bigger and better than before," said Jeffrey LeFrancois, Meatpacking District BID's Executive Director, in a news release.
"While the festival is a feast for the eyes and a social media delight, it's also a tremendous economic engine for the district and the city," LeFrancois added. "In 2021, it provided a much-needed boost to businesses in the district and we're planning for an even more successful 2022."
The European-style flower market will sit on Washington Street between Little West 12th and Gansevoort Street and feature 30 florist retailers in the immediate area.
The festival will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on June 10 and 11, and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 12.
The market is presented by the real estate development company TF Cornerstone.
While the market will serve as the center of the festival, installations will be displayed all across the Meatpacking District.
Here is a list of some of the local and national businesses participating in the festival, along with where they will be set up.
