Come Out and See Barrie's Beautiful Gardens!

Communities in Bloom is a national program involving hundreds of communities. Communities participate with other communities in their population category within their province. In July and August, trained provincial volunteer judges travel to participating communities to evaluate the overall contributions of municipal council and departments, industry, businesses, and the private sector, following the eight program criteria: tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape, turf and groundcovers, floral displays, and community involvement.

Any community is allowed to participate in a non-competitive category either to learn about the program, or, if they are past provincial participants or national finalists, to maintain their rating from the previous year.

The awards are later presented a bloom rating from 1 to 5 blooms (5 being the highest ranking) which is presented during the Communities in Bloom National Awards.
