The Philadelphia Flower Show is a Philadelphia tradition. It’s the largest and oldest indoor flower show in the world and attracts the masses. This is its 186th year, and this year the theme is Celebrate the Movies. Disney is front and center, inspiring many of the themes. You will spot many Disney classics in the designs like “ The Lion King” Tickets for the show are $32 for an adult, $22 for students, and $15 for children at the Convention Center.
And the flower show doesn’t stop at incredible floral designs. The show hosts an abundance of other fun festivities including live demonstrations, entertainment, and gardening workshops. Guests are also invited to visit the Garden to Table Studio. The set-up is very inviting and it looks just like an authentic chef’s kitchen. Every day during the show there is a free half-hour cooking demonstration.
Also in attendance at The Philadelphia Flower show will be the flower’s best friend, the butterfly. “The Butterfly Experience” is an educational and interactive exhibit created by California Sky River Butterflies. The butterfly room will display some of the most exotic, rare butterflies. Guests will have a chance to feed the butterflies and wander throughout the beautiful room. The cost of the Butterfly Experience is $3.
Looking for an excuse to party? On Friday, February 27th, there is a Black Tie Preview Party. You get a sneak peek of the sprawling acres of floral magic before it is open to the public. Proceeds from both the preview party and The Philadelphia Flower Show support the Philadelphia Horticultural Society, including the City Harvest program. During growing season, The City Harvest program feeds more than 1200 families per week.
Even if you don’t have a green thumb, there are a ton of reasons to check out The Philadelphia Flower Show and be a part of a 186 year-old tradition! Don’t have tickets? Make sure to book our Philadelphia Flower Show Package which includes an adult ticket to the show with complimentary parking!
