Chicago Flower Show



Flower Show Productions plans, organizes and produces special events in the Chicagoland area.  We focus on events that are stimulating, inspiring and provide a public benefit, allowing people to come together and have fun on a grand scale.  Our flagship event is the Chicago Flower & Garden Show, which marks the change from winter to spring each year at Navy Pier. 

About the Show: 

The roots of the Chicago Flower & Garden Show can be traced as far back as 1847!  The Show, held each March at Chicago’s Navy Pier (March 14-22, 2015), is an experience for the senses, invoking memories of spring after a typically long and cold Chicago winter.

Presented by Mariano’s, the Chicago Flower & Garden Show creates an experience that the attendee will never forget by presenting realistic, as well as DIY solutions to inspire, educate and motivate the next generation of gardener.

Show Support:

The Show is supported by the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce, Choose Chicago, the Greater North Michigan Avenue Association, Streeterville Chamber of Commerce, Chicago Gateway Green, Navy Pier and others. These organizations recognize the impact that this show has on Chicago's economy during the 1st Quarter and its intrinsic value to Chicago.

2015 sponsors of the Show include Mariano’s (presenting), Subaru (Official Vehicle), Wintrust Bank, Select Comfort, JULIE 1Call, Central Sod Farms, Eli's Cheesecake, ProEcuador, Chicagoland Gardening Magazine, Clear Channel Radio Group, WGN Radio and others.
