Bloom 2020 COVID-19 Update

Is it with deep regret that Bord Bia announces 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, we have 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 is disappointing news for many and we would like to pay tribute to the growers, designers, contractors, exhibitors and sponsors who have worked so hard on this year’s event.

The Benefits of Gardening

We know that gardening can really benefit people’s mental and physical well-being during this difficult time. This applies to everyone from families who want to get kids active in the garden and outdoors, to those who are interested in growing their own fruit & veg for the first time.

The Bloom team is exploring ways we can continue to bring the joys of gardening to the public via the Bloom website and other platforms this spring. We will announce details about this project very soon.
