Flower Show coming to the Convention Center

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will present the 195th Philadelphia Flower Show from March 2-10 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, at 11th and Arch streets.

The theme is United by Flowers.

There will be visual displays, plant competitions, family activities, artisanal crafts, educational offerings and curated shopping.

“This year’s theme, United by Flowers, focuses on coming together and we are excited to be showing all the ways that we build community with one another. From exhibits that show off the celebratory spaces that unite us to offering a series of experiences that are best when done together, there is something for every visitor to share with their loved ones at the Flower Show,” said Seth Pearsoll, the horticultural society’s creative director and vice president of the Flower Show.

In an approach to showcasing the tapestry of local neighborhoods that make the region unique, educational exhibitors will design exhibits inspired by the special characteristics of select neighborhoods.

In Celebrate the Region, visitors can experience the neighborhoods interpreted as gardens. Local schools highlight the unique spirit of the region through gardens dedicated to neighborhoods like Roxborough, South Philadelphia’s Pennsport and the Italian Market, Spring Garden and Doylestown’s small-town charm. 

Temple University aims to evoke the spirit of Pennsport, while the Lakeside School will honor the famed Italian Market, and Mercer County Community College will celebrate the bond between Northeast Philadelphia and Trenton.

The Marketplace will feature nearly 200 vendors in categories such as decorative garden decor, garden tools, apparel, live plants and home décor.

Tickets start at $29.99 and are available at tickets.phsonline.org.
