Coquitlam in Bloom

Join us as we Showcase Coquitlam to the World

The City of Coquitlam has unveiled new initiatives aimed to engage the community and invoke civic pride as we gear up for the International 2017 Communities in Bloom Competition.

Coquitlam will showcase its best qualities to the world in the coming months as it competes on an international scale in Communities in Bloom, a civic pride and beautification competition. This year the City will compete against Bruges, Belgium, Holland, MI, and Wood Buffalo Alta.

Judges will tour Coquitlam on July 17 – 18 to asses the city on 6 categories: tidiness, environmental action, heritage conservation, urban forestry, landscape and floral displays. Results will be announced on Sept. 16, 2017.
