The season of spring blooms has arrived, and before summer kicks off in June, we have the Oshawa Peony Festival to look forward to.

The festival is returning for its 20th anniversary on June 8th and 9th, 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 for 11 years in a row.

“Experience the allure of Oshawa at the award-winning Peony Festival, a captivating free two-day event hosted by the City of Oshawa,” states their website.

“Immerse yourself in the splendour of the Oshawa Valley Botanical Garden and The Michael and Judi Denny Peony Garden.”
