About the International Garden Festival
The International Garden Festival is recognized as one of the most important events of its kind in North America and one of the leading annual garden festivals in the world. Since 2000, hundreds of thousands of visitors have discovered more than one hundred contemporary and ephemeral gardens created by designers from 15 countries.

This artistic and tourism event also gives visitors a chance to discover inspiring spaces bringing together the visual arts, architecture, design, landscape and the environment. It provides an annual re
ndez-vous for admirers of contemporary gardens and design as well as offering a unique space for those involved in the renewal of this art form.

The annual International Garden Festival is hosted by the Fondation des Jardins de Métis, a non-profit organization whose mission is the creation, exhibition and promotion of contemporary gardens. The event is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts, Canadian Heritage, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Emploi-Québec, the ministère du Tourisme and the Conférence régionale des éluEs du Bas-Saint-Laurent.

About the Reford Gardens
The Reford Gardens is located on the shores of the St. Lawrence and Mitis rivers in Québec, Canada. Created from 1926 to 1958 by avid gardener and plant collector, Elsie Reford, the gardens were declared a national historic site in 1995 by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. They are considered one of the premier gardens in North America and an obligatory stop for all those visiting eastern Québec. Hydro-Québec has been a major partner of the Reford Gardens since 1999.
