Trumpets and Tulips to trump Winter Doldrums come March

Culture, historical attractions and world-class accommodations embrace visitors in this “city of neighborhoods” sophistication, charm and beauty. Whether its viewing the largest collection of Impressionist art in America, or just a horse-drawn carriage ride past Independence Hall, visitors fall in love with Philly’s eclectic exuberance and come back again and again.


And no event brings more people to Philadelphia than the largest and most incredible indoor flower show in the world.


The most fantastic, flamboyant and exclusive world-class designers, florists and landscapers will be joined by toe-tapping entertainment as they showcase their unparalleled ideas at this ultimate horticultural event. This year, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, straight from New Orleans, performs its unique brand of Big Easy-infused funk.


Extending the excitement into the streets is Flower Show Week.
