Communities in Bloom is about flourishing communities.

Due to the uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure the health and safety of communities and volunteers, Communities in Bloom has decided to cancel the evaluation tours portion of the 2020 National Edition & International Challenge. As a participant in the Communities in Bloom program since it started in 1994, the City of Edmonton has great respect for the difficult decision that our friends at this organization had to make.

Communities in Bloom will continue its commitment to provide guidance, advice, and assistance to communities with a 2020 Special Edition that will include showcasing communities on social media, virtual Q&A opportunities with judges, special contests, and Outstanding Achievement Awards.

The City of Edmonton will be participating in the 2020 Special Edition in the Circle of Excellence: Non-Evaluated Category.
