The Philadelphia Flower Show

March 23, 2023

The Philadelphia Flower Show is the nation’s largest and the world’s longest-running horticultural event.

The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) has held the Philadelphia Flower Show since 1829. The event regularly attracts about 250,000 attendees from across the globe and raises $1 million for PHS programs that promote sustainability and advance health and well-being.

With a new theme each year, the Philadelphia Flower Show invites premier floral and landscape designers from all over the world to bring dazzling displays to life in Philadelphia. The event draws both floral artists and aficionados to the city, bringing them together to marvel at the show’s breathtaking arrangements.

In 2023, the Philadelphia Flower Show returned to its home and long-time partner, the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The theme of the 2023 Flower Show was “The Garden Electric,” embodying that spark of joy that comes while giving or receiving flowers. The dazzling array of colors, unique shapes and textures, and rich fragrances of gorgeous floral displays and gardens sparked feelings of excitement throughout the show. The 2023 show’s theme brought the electrifying presence of today’s most dynamic designers of floral arrangements, lush gardens, and landscapes to visitors from around the world.
