The International Garden Festival will present seven new gardens for its 19th edition, from June 23 to October 7, 2018.
The Festival continues its exploration of play with Playsages II – Go Outside and Play! and has chosen seven projects that will offer imaginative spaces where families will congregate and play together this summer.
The International Garden Festival is the leading contemporary garden festival in North America. Since its inception in 2000, more than 150 gardens have been exhibited at Grand-Métis and as extra-mural projects in Canada and around the world. Presented at Les Jardins de Métis, the Festival is held on a site adjacent to the historic gardens created by Elsie Reford, thereby establishing a bridge between history and modernity, and a dialogue between conservation, tradition and innovation. Each year the Festival exhibits conceptual gardens created by more than seventy architects, landscape architects and designers from various disciplines in a pristine environment on the banks of the St. Lawrence River.
