The streets of downtown Vancouver are blooming with beautiful floral art displays! Don’t miss out, Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ is only available until Sunday, June 20th. In support of breast cancer research and hosted by the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association and Robson Street Business Association, the floral trail features over 50 pop-up installations in the heart of the city, created by some of Vancouver’s favourite florists.
The flower extravaganza is freely open to the public, and visitors are able to safely walk the self-guided exhibit while adhering to social distancing guidelines. Find the Floral Trail here, pick up a map available at some of the installations or scan a QR code to follow the trail. Guests are also encouraged to cycle the trail by picking up a Mobi by Shaw Go bike from one of the flower-adorned stations at Bute-Robson Plaza or Shaw Tower, located at Cordova and Thurlow. Use promo code ‘rose’ and get 25% off a 30-Day Pass to Mobi by Shaw Go, until June 20th.
Highlights include two incredible floral sculptures in-store at Holt Renfrew, the flower-bombed phone booth on Robson Street, and the Brighter Blooms Floral Pyramid at Jack Poole Plaza. Guests can also visit the English Garden Swing in front of the Blue Horizon Hotel and flower-adorned Fountain of the Pioneers on the Burrard Benches, in the brand new plazas at Bentall Centre.
Also enjoy an exclusive menu at The Vancouver Art Gallery’s 1931 Gallery Bistro, which is offering refreshing glasses of Kim Crawford Rosé and a Floral High Tea menu. Trail walkers will also be able to stop by the new Oakridge x Pac Rim Patio and enjoy a beverage and meal from the Oakridge floral-adorned food truck, or head to Chef David Hawksworth’s Nightingale restaurant for a feature ROSÉ menu.
“We are thrilled to welcome Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ #onRobson and create a unique, colourful, and whimsical floral extravaganza in downtown Vancouver that will surprise and delight visitors, support local businesses, and raise funds for breast cancer research. With the gradual easing of public health restrictions, Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ is the perfect opportunity to explore downtown, as well as indulge in a little pre or post-shopping and dining #onRobson,” says Teri Smith, Executive Director, Robson Street Business Association.
