The garden is full of more than 100 different types of tulips, around which the room is decorated with floral arrangements with different types of flowers. The entries will be judged by a professional jury after which various prizes will be awarded. The entrants are classified according to the number of boxes of tulips that they send. In addition, there are prizes for best tulip, best single tulip, etc., etc. The flower arrangements in the hall are composed by different arrangers who work with flowers from various growers in the region. They compete with these flower arrangements for the Rabo Public Prize. The visitors can vote for the most beautiful flower arrangements and can win a prize. Furthermore, there are various activities for young and old during the weekend of the three-flora flora. Think of the opening for invited guests, a picking garden, the preliminary round of the Dutch Tulip Inspection and the sponsorship afternoon. Of course we can not forget the cozy Sunday afternoon program. Here, various creative people from the region present themselves and there is live music.
The arrangers have chosen the theme ‘Tulips Art’
during our show from 7 to 10 February 2019. A tulip is used as an art object in various ways. For centuries, the tulip has been the most commonly used flower on still lifes and prints. In many living rooms these paintings and prints can be found. That is how the bloom was shown throughout the year. We often saw the art of tulips on tiles around the fireplace In art objects of various materials, the tulip is used as an example. At various entrances of companies you can find the tulip on ports or in another way. The various logos in circulation of companies indicate, sometimes in an artistic way, that we are dealing with a tulip company.

Every year about 25 participants do their best to create a beautiful flower show in De Banne. The growers of the flowers make every effort to present the flowers in the room in the best possible way.
