2018 Philadelphia Flower Show, Philadelphia, Pa.

Monday, March 5, 2018 

Think spring and come along with us to visit the 2018 Philadelphia Flower Show, where scents, sounds and extraordinary floral displays will delight our senses. The theme this year is “Wonders of Water,” which will be so much more than just waterfalls and fountains (video). This year, the design teams will stretch the imagination and bring creativity to a whole new level by incorporating water into more than 10 acres of landscapes and fanciful aquatic blooms.


Lunch will be on your own. You can sample from the plentiful food vendors at the Convention Center or those located across the street at the historic Reading Terminal Market where the vast selections range from the iconic Philly Cheese Steaks to homebaked Amish goodies.

As in years past, garden shoppers will be thrilled with the over 180 vendors offering everything from garden furniture to unique plants and flowers. Horticulture, artistic and culinary lectures and demonstrations by world-class experts are all free to show visitors.

Sign up early! This day trip fills up quickly.PHS2017
