A2 Blooms Day 2020 is Saturday, May 16

Join us for the 31st annual Ann Arbor Downtown Blooms Day! In partnership with the Downtown Development Authority and State Street Association, we will be planting flowers and beautifying downtown parks and flower beds. All materials and supplies are provided, although if possible, bring work gloves and a trowel, as these are limited. Check in at Liberty Plaza (between Liberty and South Division) at 9 a.m.

Volunteers will plant flowers, mulch planters, and help spruce up the downtown areas. Interested individuals, families, youth groups, and other organizations are welcome to drop in on this event. To volunteer, please contact
GIVE 365 at 734.794.6445, or e-mail [email protected].

Base Camp location for registration and lunch is at Liberty Plaza between E. Liberty and S. Division. Free event parking in the Library Lane parking structure on 5th Ave. between E. Liberty and E. William. (No free parking is provided for on-street meters, surface lots, or in any other parking structures.)

The event goes on rain or shine. Our flats of flowers won't wait another week--and any natural water will be good for them! Downtown merchants will welcome you in their shops if you need to wait for a shower to pass.

  • Check in between 9-9:30 a.m.  Event concludes by 11a.m. Join us for pizza provided by Pizza House afterwards.

  • Volunteers will receive a free t-shirt sponsored by the State Street District.

  • Please bring or fill out a Volunteer waiver form (pdf)

  • Supplies will be provided for planting flowers throughout downtown, please bring your own gardening gloves and trowel if you have one.

  • Please dress for the weather. The event will proceed, rain or shine!
