2020: Birds of A Feather

This year’s Canada Blooms theme  “Birds Of A Feather” is designed to focus on similarities, similarities between people, nature, animals (birds in particular),  plants and insects. We invite designers to consider this while creating their design or they go a different direction and explore the imagery related to birds and feathers.

Canada Blooms Floral Alley is a celebration of Ontario top floral artists. There displays at the festival are truly inspirational.

Displays are designed to last 10 days and floral material will be refreshed throughout the festival, creating a new look. These stunning displays showcase just what professional florists can do.
