The Philadelphia Flower show returns to The Pennsylvania Convention Center this year from March 4-12, 2023. This family-friendly event will feature bold and creative floral arrangements sure to amaze visitors as well as world-class shopping, live music, and delicious foods.
The theme of the flower show this year is Garden Electric. “The joy that we feel when engaging in something creative is what inspired the guest experiences for the 2023 Flower Show. We want Flower Show attendees to channel the spirit of the bright and exuberant gardens and get involved doing and making something that will be a lasting memory,” said PHS’s Director of Experiences and Engagement, Rebecca Schuchart.
