Beautification Competition

Beautification Competition

The 2023 IPM Beautification Competition is your opportunity to visually demonstrate your community spirit and to make the surrounding areas more appealing to our visitors.

The contest engages the communities within Dufferin by creating outdoor visual displays that incorporate the theme, flowers and colours of the 2023 International Plowing Match and Rural Expo.

A total of $2,500 is up for grabs! Prizes will be awarded in each of the main categories of Urban, Rural and Business (includes stores, churches) and barn quilts. Get involved and be creative. The more displays the greater the impact!

Theme - Breathe In Dufferin - Ontario’s Heartland
Flowers - Hydrangeas and Fall Mums
Colours - Blue, Rust, Cream
