We’re thrilled to welcome you back to our second annual Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ : Bloor-Yorkville initiative. This is a one-of-a-kind, floral event bringing together Toronto’s top floral talent, local businesses and the general public. Bloor-Yorkville will be “flower-bombed” from August 4th to August 8th. We invite you to walk our curated floral trail, which will take you throughout the neighbourhood, featuring a number of unique installations, displays, and even culinary floral creations. Guests can walk the floral trail daily from 10 am – 9 pm.
Charity components are a major part of our annual events. Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ: Bloor-Yorkville is pleased to support the Breast Cancer Society of Canada and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. We do this by donating funds for research through part proceeds raised through sponsorship, flower market sales and direct donation spots on the floral trail. You can also donate directly online.

Fleurs de Villes Chien
It’s no secret that the Bloor-Yorkville community has a love for its puppy counterparts. A quick jaunt down the street and you’ll see a number of pups out for their daily stroll. Paying homage to this is the Fleurs de Villes Chien exhibit, taking place at Yorkville Village (136 Yorkville Avenue). Stop by The Oval (just inside Yorkville Avenue entrance) to explore several playful exhibits focused on all things chien! These installations are available for viewing August 4-6 from 11-6 pm and August 7-8 from 12-5 pm.
On Saturday, August 7th visit local florists through the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood and bring some joy back to your home. Part proceeds from our flower market will be in support of Breast Cancer Research.
We ask everyone to adhere to local guidelines of physical distancing and wearing face masks indoors. Taking the time to enjoy, in a responsible way, will make sure we can all experience the uplifting nature of this beautiful initiative. We encourage everyone to review the Ontario Government safety guidelines.
