Philadelphia, PA - The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society announced that the 2023 Philadelphia Flower Show will return to its indoor location at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in early Spring from March 4-12, 2023.
Philadelphia Flower Show Makes its Return to the Pennsylvania Convention Center
In 2023, PHS invites guests back to celebrate the spectacular and decadent floral displays that the award-winning Flower Show is known for and to embrace the radiance and joy that flowers provide. After transitioning the Flower Show outdoors to South Philadelphia's FDR Park for the past two years due to COVID-19 concerns, the 2023 Flower Show will again welcome guests to experience the first taste of Spring indoors. The 2023 Show will reveal flowers, gardens, and horticulture's exciting, energetic, and passionate side. This return indoors will offer a beautiful respite after a long winter for first-time visitors and longtime Flower Show fans alike.
"We are so excited to welcome guests back to the Pennsylvania Convention Center for the 2023 Philadelphia Flower Show, from March 4-12. After two monumental years of producing the Flower Show outdoors, our return to this venue brings us back to our indoor home and the ability to create a colorful and fragrant beginning to the spring season," said PHS's Chief of Shows, Sam Lemheney.
Except for the 2021 and 2022 Flower Shows, the Pennsylvania Convention Center has been the indoor home of the Philadelphia Flower Show since 1996. Located just steps from America's most historic square mile, the Pennsylvania Convention Center offers the perfect indoor backdrop to bring the Philadelphia Flower Show to life. It serves more than 31 million visitors annually from 120 cities nationwide.
"Producing the Flower Show outdoors at FDR Park allowed PHS to continue this beautiful and historical event during a tumultuous time. We couldn't have done this without the support of the Fairmount Park Conservancy, the Philadelphia Department of Parks & Recreation, the American Swedish Historical Museum, the Sports Complex Special Services District, and the Friends of FDR Park, who offered us their support and partnership throughout the past two years," said Matt Rader, PHS President.
Each visitor who purchases a Flower Show ticket attends a Flower Show special event, or becomes a PHS member contributes to PHS to further its community-driven work by planting trees, supporting neighborhood greening, establishing community gardens, providing job training, managing public gardens, and connecting people with horticulture and one another.
