The 2020 Philadelphia Flower Show invites you to fall in love with the Italian Riviera with their “Riviera Holiday” Show. Since 1829, people have been making the journey to Philadelphia to see the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event. Inspired by the wildly exotic gardens of the Mediterranean, the lush landscapes will be filled with fragrant waves of citrus, lavender, geraniums, roses, rosemary and sage. There will be hundreds of displays by the world’s premier floral and landscape designers.
As in years past, garden shoppers will be thrilled with the more than 180 vendors selling everything from garden furniture to unique plants and flowers. Horticultural, artistic and culinary lectures and demonstrations by world-class experts are mostly free to show visitors.
Lunch will be on your own. Sample the plentiful food vendors at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, where the show is held, or go across the street to the Historic Reading Terminal Market. There, the selections will range from Philly Cheese Steaks to home-baked Amish goodies.
Plan now to visit the 2020 Philadelphia Flower Show and imagine the warm, fragrant Italian Riviera. It will be both breathtaking and inspiring.
