PHILADELPHIA– At a press conference held this morning, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society announced the theme of the 2023 Philadelphia Flower Show: “The Garden Electric.” This exciting and vibrant new show will be held March 4 - 12 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, a return indoors after two years of being held outdoors in Philadelphia’s FDR Park. Tickets will be on sale starting October 3, 2022, at the Show’s lowest and best price for a limited time.
That spark of joy comes while giving or receiving flowers — this moment captured by “The Garden Electric.” Feelings of excitement and celebration come from the dazzling array of colors, unique shapes and textures, and rich fragrances of gorgeous floral displays and gardens. This year’s theme brings the electrifying presence of today’s most dynamic designers of floral arrangements, lush gardens, and landscapes to visitors worldwide.
PHS worked closely with The City of Philadelphia in 2021 and 2022 to keep health and safety paramount to the Flower Show experience, leading to the Show’s transition to an outdoor venue at South Philadelphia’s FDR Park for the first time in its 190+year history.
After much consideration of the current pandemic climate, ongoing conversations with City officials, and hearing valuable feedback from Flower Show attendees, PHS is thrilled to bring the Flower Show back to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in 2023, from March 4 - 12, 2023. This year’s Show celebrates the start of spring and invites guests to experience all the spectacular and decadent floral displays that the award-winning Flower Show is known for.
“This year’s theme, ‘The Garden Electric,’ is meant to encompass the feeling of magic, celebration, and awe we get when we encounter gorgeous flowers and gardens. We are creating a truly immersive experience for guests centered on bold, eccentric, vibrant color pairings and an element of surprise that will ignite a sense of wonder and excitement in our guests,” said PHS’s Director of Design, Seth Pearsoll.
Apart from the 2021 and 2022 Flower Shows, the Pennsylvania Convention Center has been the indoor home of the Philadelphia Flower Show since 1996 and serves more than 31 million visitors annually from 120 cities nationwide. 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.
