2017 Chicago Flower & Garden Show

2017 Chicago Flower & Garden Show

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 2017 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. Learn from horticultural experts from a multitude of different professions during our free seminars every day of the show. With a wide range of interesting topics being offered, you’re sure to leave this year’s show excited, educated and inspired. Participate in a potting party to learn, hands-on, from industry professionals! Special classes walk you through the ins-and-outs of Container Gardening and Floral Arranging. Take your creations home with you!

Flanagan's Wake

Flanagan's Wake

Prepare to mourn laugh at Flanagan's Wake


Flanagan's Wake is one of the longest running shows in Chicago theater history, playing in Chicago for twenty smash years! Gather together and pay your respects to Flanagan at this hilarious interactive Irish wake.

Flanagan’s Wake transports the audience to the fictional town of Grapplin, Ireland, where local roustabout Flanagan has died. Here they meet an eclectic cast of characters including Fiona Finn, Flanagan’s spirited fiancée of 22 years, Brian Ballybunion, his best friend and drinking mate, Father Damon Fitzgerald, the sharp-tongued parish priest, Mayor O’Doul, the town mayor and bartender, the innocent Mother Flanagan and several other colorful citizens. The mourners pay their respects to the deceased in the Irish tradition (with a quick stop at the pub first).
