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 attracts 250,000 attendees from across the globe. It raises $1 million for PHS programs that promote sustainability, health, and well-being.
With a new theme each year, the Philadelphia Flower Show invites premier floral and landscape designers from around the world to bring dazzling displays to life in Philadelphia. The event draws both floral artists and aficionados, bringing them together to marvel at the show’s breathtaking arrangements.
2024 Flower Show
The 2024 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show will mark the event’s 195th year. It will be held March 2-10, 2024 with “United by Flowers” as its theme. Organizers say the theme is a celebration of “the colorful community that comes together to share in their love of gardening, flowers, and plants, and the impact they make on our lives all year round.”
In addition to its usual impressive floral displays, the 2024 show will also feature the world’s largest houseplant and indoor plant competition. Both expert and amateur horticulturalists are encouraged to enter their displays which will be judged by experts from around the world. PHS is also introducing a new pricing structure to offer more flexibility. Tickets are now on sale.
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.
