Fort Erie Communities-in-Bloom

Communities-in-Bloom is a non-profit Canadian organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus enhancing green space in communities.


The Council-appointed Fort Erie Communities-in-Bloom Committee acts on behalf of the Community, to coordinate participation in the National Communities-in-Bloom Program and conduct a local Communities-in-Bloom competition that recognizes the environmental, beautification and volunteer efforts of Fort Erie property owners and organizations.




Now that the monsoon season is over and you have had a chance to see what survived a winter of little snow and hungry squirrels, we invite you to participate in the 2017 Communities in Bloom program.


Some exciting additions to the 2017 program include:

  • Judging over two days, allowing the judges to give feedback on your gardens, highlights and suggestions for growth.
  • The Eastern Redbud has been added for bonus points, in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday.
  • New categories include  Churches, Elementary and Secondary School projects, and The Mad Hatter Garden - your chance to have fun, go crazy and bring those garden gnomes and fairies out of storage.
  • The Communities-in-Bloom Awards Celebration will take place on Sunday August 20th at 5:00pm at the Fort Erie Leisureplex. All participants will be recognized with bloom awards.
