 The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society (PHS) announced today that tickets to the 2021 Philadelphia Flower Show, June 5 – 13, are available for purchase at: www.PHSonline.org. Attendees are asked to select their preferred date and session at the time of purchase.  To allow for social distance protocols, a limited number of tickets will be available for each day and time segment. Early purchase is highly recommended.

The Philadelphia Flower Show, typically held each March at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, will be held outdoors for the first time in its history this summer at the historic Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park (FDR Park) in South Philadelphia. 

Given the pandemic, the move will allow PHS to present the show safely, at the height of the gardening season and with the added health benefits of the outdoors.

The central location, situated adjacent to the South Philadelphia Sports Complex, is accessible to major highways and mass transit. 

 The park features inspiring natural beauty and an expansive setting that also provides show designers with an exciting new layout for creative expression and horticultural displays. Visitors will experience the show through three distinct “Districts” that feature all manner of Plants, Design, and Gardening created for all skill levels.

The Flower Show “footprint” will span 15 acres of FDR Park’s 348 acres parallel to Pattison Avenue allowing the vast majority of FDR Park and its amenities to remain accessible to the public during the Flower Show dates. PHS is working closely with local community leaders and Philadelphia Parks and Recreation on show planning.

“We are thrilled to be able to celebrate the outdoors and offer joy and beauty after a year that has been marked by so many challenges,” Sam Lemheney, PHS chief of shows and events, said. “This experience is a wonderful example of the enduring and combined power of green space, plants, and gardeners to create impact and inspiration.”  

FDR Park, a registered historical district, was built to the design of Olmsted Brothers, the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and John Charles Olmsted, in the early 20th century. With walkable pathways, majestic trees and breathtaking views, FDR Park is an inspiring venue that contributes to the splendor that the Flower Show is known for.
