The Cambridge Poppy Project

Memorial Poppies

The Cambridge Poppy Project is a community art project of Remembrance using hand-made poppies lovingly created and donated by people living in and around Cambridge and also from Ontario, almost every Province in Canada, and throughout the world, to honour our Veterans.

The knitted and crocheted poppies will be displayed on the interior and exterior of the Queen's Square Branch of the Idea Exchange building in Galt and also on the outside of the 

Preston and Hespeler Idea Exchange locations and several other locations throughout Cambridge.

We invite you to take the Poppy Tour and visit all of our locations.

Most can be viewed from your car.

A full list of sites can be found here

Our goal in collecting the poppies was to thank and recognize all of our area Veterans and those military personnel who are currently serving our country.

Additional information on soldiers from our area can be found

on this page.



Our goal was 10,000 poppies and you helped us to collect more than 33,000!

You have exceeded our expectations with your support and love for our Veterans

and we thank you.

We are currently in the process of assembling the installations and getting them ready 

for display from October 29 - November 12th.


We hope that you will take the Poppy Tour and view all of the various installations throughout Cambridge.

A complete list of installations and locations can be found here.
