In 2018, the Flower Show will also partner with Bernie’s Book Bank, a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase book ownership among at-risk children throughout Chicagoland. Bernie’s Book Bank will help set the tone for the theme “FLOWERTALES: Every Garden Has a Story to Tell." This theme has the creators of the Chicago Flower & Garden Show gardens interpreting the unique role flowers, plants and gardens play in the stories of our lives and literature. At acclaimed Nacy Pier the 2018 Chicago Flower & Garden Show will run Wednesday, March 14 through Sunday, March 18, 2018, in Festival Halls A & B.
Since 2011, the annual event has been produced by Flower Show Productions, which includes the visionary leadership of owner and director Tony Abruscato. Through his commitment and the dedication of sponsors and supporters, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show is encouraging new generations to get involved and be inspired by gardening.
