2024 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show

The PHS Philadelphia Flower Show is the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event and fundraiser featuring stunning displays by the world’s premier floral, garden, and landscape designers. 

2024 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show “United By Flowers” 

The region’s most looked-to gardening attraction returns to the Pennsylvania Convention Center Saturday, March 2 through Sunday, March 10, 2024. The 2024 Flower Show celebrates the unique and colorful community born out of our shared love and appreciation of gardening and the connections and impact they create on our everyday lives.  

United by Flowers is a celebration of the community that blooms each Spring at the annual PHS Philadelphia Flower Show – a moment when hundreds of thousands from the region, East Coast, and the world share in a week-long magnification of the transformative power of gardening. In this fragmented world of consistently changing landscapes, everyone who participates – from exhibitors and competitors to artisans and guests – brings their passion and enthusiasm to the Pennsylvania Convention Center to co-create this unique event that proudly puts this vibrant and colorful collective on display. 

SEPTA can get you right to the Convention Center. Below - we've included info travel tips to help get you to and from this year's show. Additional event information can be found on the official Flower Show website.
