The Second City. The Windy City. The City of Big Shoulders. Whatever the name or title, Chicago is much more than a headline or destination. It’s the melting pot of the Midwest and where the Ferris wheel took its first spin. A place where skyscrapers make the view, improv shows rein and hotdogs are served ketchup-less. If you haven’t caught our drift, we’re saying that Chicago is unlike any other.

With all this Chicago spirit and love, you have to be asking, “What does this have to do with the show?” Well, in honor of this city in a garden, the 2018 show theme will be applauding all that is wonderful about Chicago’s neighborhoods, cultural institutions and green scene. (Which happens to be a lot!) From urban design innovations to cutting-edge food fusions to leaner and greener living, Chicago is where ideas are born and built.

And that is a reason to celebrate!

The five-day event will feature 20+ life-sized gardens that you can walk through, daily seminars, DIY workshops and a bustling marketplace. Perfect for families, gardening veterans and newbies, the 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show will be an event filled with hands-on experiences and non-stop fun. So join us this March as we inspire, motivate and educate visitors of all ages with

Every Garden Has a Story to Tell

We’re taking our commitment to inspire, educate and motivate even further by partnering with Bernie’s Book Bank.
