The season of spring blooms has arrived, and later this season, we have the Oshawa Peony Festival to look forward to.

The festival is returning for its 11th year in a row, attracting thousands of people from all over to its gorgeous display of blooming peonies.

This event is so popular that it has been recognized among Ontario’s top 100 festivals.

There are 300 types of peonies on display in the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens during the weekend-long festival.

In addition to the flower display, visitors will get to enjoy an artisan vendor market, live music, gardening demonstrations, a judged peony show, an art competition, and more.
