Philadelphia Flower Show

Monday, March 4, 10 a.m.–9 p.m.

  • Flower Show only—$95 members/$120 non-members includes transportation, driver gratuity, & entrance ticket.
  • Flower Show + Rail Park tour—$130 members/$155 non-members includes transportation, driver gratuity, Flower Show entrance ticket, and a private 90-minute guided walking tour of the proposed Rail Park       

The 190th PHS Philadelphia Flower Show will pay tribute to the enormous impact of flowers on our lives. From the first blooms of spring in your home garden to the expansive fields that fuel whole economies, flowers influence how we feel, think, and act in ways both small and global. Exhibits will take a comprehensive approach to the theme with sweeping landscapes and artful interpretations that convey a universal language.

For more adventure, add an early-afternoon guided tour of the Rail Park! The tour will start at 21st & Pennsylvania Avenue and end at 12th & Noble, the site of the recently opened Phase I. Participants will be dropped off near the Rodin Museum to enjoy the Dorrane H. Hamilton Garden and have lunch on their own before the walking tour at 2 p.m. Phase I of the park is within a half mile of the Philadelphia Flower Show, where participants can join the others for the show.
