Toronto Flower Show Rules & Registration

Welcome Back!

Canada Blooms Flower Festival co-chairs, Janet Ennamorato and Judy Zinni are delighted to introduce the 2019 Canada Blooms Festival, “A Family Affair”.

Each year, Canada Blooms celebrates the return of spring with colourful and “scentsational” displays in beautifully designed gardens, professional floral displays, and amateur enthusiasts’ exhibits of floral art, horticulture and photography. In 2019, Canada Blooms once again offers smaller displays of balconies, front entranceways, and backyards, as well as delightful large garden spaces to stroll. Come ready to see what captivating ideas the garden builders, designers, architects, and floral artists have prepared for you, and what inspiring ideas you will glean to use in your own home and garden.

The Toronto Flower Show at Canada Blooms, presented by the members of The Garden Club of Toronto, is thrilled to provide another exciting show of horticultural delights and floral artistry. The Toronto Flower Show brings together non-professional exhibitors and members of horticultural societies and garden clubs from across Ontario and from around the world, to compete in floral design, horticulture and photography. We hope this exciting competitors’ schedule will inspire you to enter the competition. Whether you enter or not, please stop by the flower show during the festival to enjoy this feast for the senses!

Not to be missed, are the many engaging speakers and interesting workshops that the Canada Blooms team has once again organized for you. Perennial favourites Mark  and Ben Cullen will be back on the UNILOCK Celebrity Stage, as will new and old favourites to share their love of plants, gardens and nature. Learn about the latest trends, new products, and timely tips; there will be something for everyone.

Okay, time to blow our own horn a bit – did you know:

– American Express named Canada Blooms in its top five international festivals in March 2018!

– Condé Nast and USA Today named Canada Blooms in their 2017 list of top ten garden shows… in the world!

– Canada Blooms is Canada’s top Garden Festival!

Wow! Definitely a not-to-be-missed event.

The staff and Board of Directors of Canada Blooms would like to thank the many hard-working garden builders, talented designers and architects, creative floral artists, passionate growers, and dedicated volunteers for making Canada Blooms the world-class festival that it is. Please join us at Canada Blooms in 2019; bring the kids, bring the grandparents, bring everyone. It will truly be A Family Affair!
