Bord Bia has announced the cancellation of Bloom 2020 scheduled to take place from Thursday 28th of May to Monday 1st of June in the Phoenix Park.
Following consultation with the relevant authorities, Bord Bia has made this decision in light of the unprecedented threat to public health presented by COVID-19. The health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and staff is our number one priority. An event of Bloom’s scale requires many months of preparation involving a range of multi-disciplinary teamwork. This decision will be disappointing news for many and Bord Bia would like to pay tribute to the growers, designers, contractors, exhibitors and sponsors who have worked so hard on this year’s event.
Bord Bia says: 'We know that gardening can be of benefit to people’s mental and physical well-being during this difficult time. Bord Bia will be here as a resource with tips on planting and gardening at home for everyone, from the complete novice to the many loyal Bloom attendees who feed their passion for gardening at the festival each year'.
