Floriade 2022

Welcome to Eastern Canada

The lure of Eastern Canada is born of both rugged and picturesque origins... it is timeless, found in quaint fishing villages steeped in Acadian and Celtic culture, in multicultural capital cities, along dramatic seascapes where crashing tides envelop steep cliffs... throughout the pastoral beauty of the Maritime Provinces, summer or autumn... 

Niagara Falls, Ontario

"Canada's Capital Cities Plus Niagara Falls" and "Cruising the Great Lakes: Chicago to Toronto"

Comprised of three waterfalls – American Falls, Horseshoe Falls and Bridal Veil Falls – Niagara Falls water stems from the upper Great Lakes; the river is estimated to be 12,000 years old. Journey to thundering Niagara Falls for a catamaran cruise near the plunging waters and misty spray of the waterfalls – getting wet is a distinct possibility – and explore the quaint Victorian village of Niagara-on-the-Lake with its flower-filled, tree-lined streets.

Bay of Fundy, The Maritimes

"Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island"

Head out to the strip of land known as Digby Neck, on the Bay of Fundy, known for the highest tides on earth, the rarest whales in the world, semi-precious minerals and dinosaur fossils. It is a haven for whale- and seabird-watchers, a wonderful place to spot finback, minke and humpback whales as well as seals. And… you'll attend a presentation by a local fisherman on the history and harvesting of the world-renowned – and melt-in-your-mouth delicious – Digby Scallop at a farewell dinner.

Quebec City, Quebec

"Canada's Capital Cities plus Niagara Falls"

Quebec City – the only fortified city north of Mexico – is a cultural treasure. You'll feel like you've stepped into a 17th-century European village as you stroll along Old Quebec's cobblestone streets and enjoy a taste of the royal life during your three-night stay in your château-hotel overlooking the St. Lawrence River.

Lunenburg, Nova Scotia

"Canadian Maritimes" and "Nova Scotia & Prince Edward Island"

Old Town Lunenburg achieved its designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site because it's one of the best surviving examples of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Closely tied to maritime pursuits such as shipbuilding, fishing and privateering, the 19th-century houses are often timber-built and colorfully painted. An excellent place for a guided walk.


Highlights of your visit to Floriade

A visit to Floriade is a feast for the senses with emerald cities dressed in natural designs, a floating tree forest, fragrant flowers and scented fruit trees, expert insights by horticulturists from around the world, tastings of international fare and garden-grown produce, and hands-on exhibits for personal green thumb discoveries. Explore 148 acres of garden-graced landscapes themed with green as you discover an urban arboretum steeped in nature to nurture the future – included on the river cruises featured below.

See what it takes to grow a green city

Learn how trees, plants and grasses can help urban cities thrive and remain safe, healthy and attractive for a greener future.

The theme of Floriade 2022, Growing Green Cities, takes shape in a vibrant urban arboretum reclaimed from the sea and repurposed to showcase innovative green solutions where cities and nature meet. In the Green Island District, you will find a living catalogue of greenery, donated from growers across the Netherlands and countries around the world, alphabetically ordered and purposefully planted with demonstrable roles for the future of our cities. During your visit, you can stroll through garden graced landscapes rooted with coniferous and deciduous trees, hedges and grasses, flowers, fruit trees and aquatic plants as you see, taste, smell and feel the contribution they make to a healthier world.

Enjoy a taste of the future using sustainable gardening practices

Discover new technologies and solutions for growing food, naturally and sustainably, as you meet experts who share insights about this living laboratory with you.

Sustainable food production is an important goal of Floriade’s green city theme. You’ll discover new ways to grow crops, vegetables and fruit trees using creative agricultural and horticultural practices as you view exhibits that work with nature to feed our cities. See demonstrations in food-production, waste, safety and food security and learn more about state-of-the-art, science-based solutions that produce a diverse range of foods adapted to local conditions and regional markets. Tastings of locally produced fare will enhance your experience!

Discover how greenery promotes a healthy lifestyle

From the air you breathe to the water you drink and the ground you walk on, greenery plays a big part in keeping you healthy, physically and mentally.

The contribution of green structures and green spaces to a healthy living environment will become second nature as you explore Floriade. From promoting clean air, water and soil to providing an ever-green home for people living in our cities, everything you’ll experience at Floriade 2022 is designed for healthy living. After the Expo, the Floriade site will be redeveloped into Hortus, a 660-house residential area that will border and thrive on the green areas of the arboretum. Hortus in Latin literally means garden, a fitting name for this emerald city of the future.

Learn how green cities are energized with renewable resources

Energizing the city, the renewable energy resources in play at Floriade include new inventions for generating, storing and saving energy.

Sustainable and renewable energy solutions are indispensable for the green cities of the future and are especially critical in meeting the energy requirements of a growing population. Dedicated to finding workable solutions to energize cities without negatively impacting the environment, Floriade Expo 2022 will present a variety of new inventions for generating, storing and saving energy in working exhibits that truly energize the green city you will see here. Meet the experts as you learn the latest about new energy resources.
