The Philadelphia Flower Show will return to South Philly’s FDR Park in 2022.

Following the success of the first outdoor event in the show’s 192-year history, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society announced a return to FDR in June.

“The decision to host the 2022 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show outdoors was based on the continuing evolution and uncertainty of COVID-19,” said Sam Lemheney, PHS Chief of Shows & Events. “ ‘In Full Bloom’ is PHS’s celebration of how gardening and plants have helped people navigate these challenging times. We hope that by sharing the hope and healing that nature and gardening bring, it will inspire people to look towards a brilliant future.”

The show will take place from June 11-19. The 2022 theme connotes good health, a positive well-being and a passion for life that culminates in a gorgeous and colorful spectacle.

In its second year hosting the show at FDR Park, PHS has planned upgrades and enhancements based on feedback from guests, staff and stakeholders. 

Guests can expect improvements to several areas including parking, transportation, ticketing and design. More details will be announced in the coming months and available at PHSonline.org.
