The Philadelphia Horticultural Society will be hosting the Philadelphia Flower Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Did you know that annual Philly event is the oldest and largest flower show? Doors will open for visitors on March 5th and run until March 13th. That is plenty of time for you to get to the convention center and see the most beautiful collection of flowers, in one space!
The Philadelphia Horticultural Society has provided a list of helpful suggestions for event attendees and we wanted to share them with you, as well, so you can prepare for your visit:
Dress for the occasion.
There’s a lot to see, so comfortable shoes are a must. Dress in layers as it can get chilly on the Show floor. Take notes.
Jot down the name of plants you like or the contact information of exhibitors, or snap a photo of your favorite exhibits. Identify yourself.
If you are a PHS member, bring your Membership ID, which entitles you to discounts at the Flower Show Store and other retail locations. Plan the day.
Check the schedule of events on the Flower Show App, website, or upon arrival at the Convention Center. There are lectures, demonstrations, culinary displays, book signings, and more that you don’t want to miss. Make a shopping list.
The Flower Show is a shopper’s paradise. Think ahead to spring and what you might want for the months ahead. Throwing a party? Planning a garden bed? Considering a new hobby? Redecorating a room? Chances are the things you need can be found on the Show floor.
