We’re thrilled to announce our newest initiative for the holiday season: Fleurs de Villes NOËL: Bloor-Yorkville! As one of our popular springtime Annual Events, Fleurs de Villes has become a fan favourite, transforming the neighbourhood with one-of-a-kind floral installations. This event brings together our local businesses and some of Toronto’s top florists, creating a completely unique experience, free to the public. The event will take place between December 7th – 11th, creating must-see moments to enjoy with friends, family, or loved ones. The trail is open to all ages.
Fleurs de Villes NOËL Pop-Up Floral Installations:
Guests are invited to walk our self-guided floral trail, which will take place throughout the entire community. Installations will include everything from floral candy canes, a holiday toboggan, a Nutcracker ballet mannequin, a winter swing, and much more! Along the way, guests can stop at one of our participating restaurants to enjoy a floral cocktail! Participating restaurants include the Living Room at the W Hotel, The Oxley, ONE at the Hazelton Hotel, and Joni Restaurant at the Park Hyatt.
Our detailed event map indicates participating businesses, which installation you’ll find at each location, and the floral team behind the creation. You can view the event map online here.
In keeping with the winter theme, we’re excited to announce SKATE, which will be an ode to Canadian Figure Skating royalty. These mannequins will be set up at the Upper-Level Oval at Yorkville Village (55 Avenue Road) and will be inspired by Tessa Virtue, Elvis Stojko, Kirsten Moore-Towers, and Kaitlyn Weaver.
