2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show

FLOWERTALES: Every Garden Has a Story to Tell


Every year, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show reinvents itself to help millions of visitors find inspiration, education and motivation for enhancing their own outdoor spaces, while cultivating the next generation of gardeners. This year, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show partners with Bernie's Book Bank, a non-profit dedicated to increasing book ownership among Chicago's at-risk youth. The re-designed five-day show "FLOWERTALES" will explore the unique role flowers, plants and gardens play in the stories of our lives.

The 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show will feature display gardens and vignettes showcasing roses, tulips, edibles, small spaces, water features and urban design. Garden Gourmet cooking demonstrations, a public photography competition, Potting Parties (container gardening workshops) and the popular Kids’ Activity Garden will return, along with the show’s all-new Get Growing Educational Presentation Series, featuring interactive how-to performances, workshops and seminars led by experts from the Chicago area and across the country.

With 24-plus walkable gardens built by the industry’s most notable professionals, 64 ongoing presentations led by nationally-renowned experts, 30 celebrity chef demonstrations, 24 Potting Parties and Stem Studio classes and five days to see and do it all – the 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show will open a new chapter in the show’s history, as it continues to bloom brilliantly with even more how-tos, experts, experiences and inspiration.
