Chicago Flower & Garden Show: March 14-18, 2018

Every garden has a story to tell! Flower Tales at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show is in full bloom at Navy Pier in Festival Hall this March 14 through 18, 2018!

Reformatted to a 5-day show with an expanded Home & Garden Marketplace, expanded design/build partnerships and additional educational offerings, the 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show will feature more than 20 life-sized display gardens and vignettes showcasing azaleas, tulips, edibles, small spaces, water features and urban design.

Visitors will experience gardens from the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences, Racine Zoo, Rosborough Partners, Suntory Plants, Chicago Sculpture Exhibit, Aquascape, Women’s Journey in Fiber and more, as well as window boxes from Garden Clubs of Illinois and tablescapes by noted event and floral designers.

Garden Gourmet cooking demonstrations, a public photography competition, Potting Parties and the popular Kids’ Activity Garden will return, along with the show’s all-new Get Growing Presentation Series, featuring interactive how-to presentations, workshops and seminars led by experts from the Chicago area and across the country.

In 2018, we’re taking our commitment to Inspire, Educate and Motivate even further by partnering with Bernie’s Book Bank. A Lake Bluff, IL based non-profit organization whose mission is to increase book ownership among at-risk children throughout Chicagoland. Bernie’s Book Bank will help set the tone for an expanded show in a shorter time frame. Bernie’s Book Bank is the leading provider of quality children’s books in the Chicagoland area. Guided by the belief that reading is a vital way for children to change their lives for the better, they deliver quality books to at-risk youth from birth through sixth grade.
