Thank you from Canada Blooms
by Canada Blooms
May 14, 2020

As you probably know by now, Canada Blooms had to cancel our 2020 festival due to concerns about Covid-19.

We, along with our partner The Home Show – The Big One – on Thursday, March 12, made the decision that the safety of our garden builders, exhibitors, floral artists, partners, staff, volunteers and our loyal visitors was paramount. And, as we can see from the past few weeks, we made the right decision. However, we were still disappointed as we were set up (with only a few finishing touches left) and ready to go for opening day.

Although we did not open to the public, we did continue with the judging of the Feature Gardens, the Toronto Flower Show and the Floral Alley: The Professional Floral Artist Showcase. Thanks to a few exhibitors who were in the building on Thursday and Friday we ended up with some walk through videos so that people could still see the hard work and innovation that went into the gardens and floral displays.

This year’s Canada Blooms festival had so much colour and creativity for garden and floral designers, that it was so disappointing visitors were not able to enjoy the festival in all its splendour.

We would like to thank all the garden builders, floral artists and exhibitors who not only spent many hours planning and building their displays/booths but who also lost their investment in Canada Blooms this year because they were unable to meet visitors as planned.

Visitors might not be aware of the amount of dedicated people that are needed to put on our event, from partners and sponsors, exhibitors, competitors, presenters, staff, volunteers, facility managers and employees from all the service contractor, all of whom were disappointed in the way circumstances worked out this year.

See you March 12-21, 2021!
