We’re thrilled to welcome you back to our fourth annual Fleurs de Villes: Bloor-Yorkville initiative. The theme this year is VOYAGE, a journey of discovery and iconic global storytelling. This one-of-a-kind, floral event brings together some of Toronto’s top floral talent, local businesses, and the general public. Just in time for Mother’s Day, we invite you to walk our curated floral trail anytime from May 10th – May 13th, discovering one-of-a-kind floral mannequins, installations, workshops, and market stalls! This is a free event, open to all ages.

VOYAGE will take you all around the world through flowers, including installations such as “Spring in the Netherlands,” mannequins inspired by Spain, Scotland, Japan, and even Floral Rocky Mountains!
