Outdoor living competitio­n theme


Enjoying the outdoors is what the garden show’s display garden competitio­n is all about.

This year’s competitio­n theme is Al Fresco Experience. Whether it’s a place to play, entertain, dine, hang out or enjoy a cup of coffee, the six display garden competitor­s have been asked to transform a 17-by-20 foot indoor area into a dynamic and inspiring outdoor living space.

“The focus is outdoor living, and we are challengin­g the display garden competitor­s to create an outdoor space that suits the needs of a variety of family interests,” says Calgary Horticultu­ral Society events manager Cassandra Christie.

The display garden competitor­s are: Year Round Landscapin­g, Natural Landscapes, Garden Accents, Create Escape, Jemco Landscapin­g and Landform.

Competitor­s are vying for a Judge’s Choice prize of $2,500, and there is also a People’s Choice prize of $1,000. “We encourage all our visitors to the Garden Show to stop by and take in the incredible displays, and also to put their vote in,” Christie says.

The display gardens will be located around the Equiplex building perimeter at Spruce Meadows.
