Everything’s Coming Up Roses at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show

February 19, 2015

Sure, Chicago is experiencing some of the coldest temps of the season. But underneath all those layers of scarves, jackets, and sweaters that combat the single-digit temperatures, Chicagoans are about to get their first true sign of spring. The Chicago Flower & Garden Show, presented by Mariano’s is arriving March 14, 2015 at Navy Pier. There are several NEW and exciting features at this year’s show, including:

  • Two dazzling rose gardens that demonstrate in an up-close, colorful way how easy roses are to grow and maintain.
  • An Irish Heritage Garden that evokes a charming cottage in the Emerald Isle—just in time for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations!
  • An expanded Kids’ Activity Garden with new potting parties, build-your-own bee and bug sanctuary projects, flower crafts, floral arrangement workshops and a creepy-crawly insect petting zoo.
  • The Retail Bakers Association’s national cake decorating competition, held during closing weekend of the show on March 21-22, with acclaimed pastry chefs from all over the country vying for the cake topper title.

Meanwhile, here’s some good news for those driving to the show: Navy Pier has partnered with two off-site parking garages to offer discounted parking during the Chicago Flower & Garden Show for $15 when validated at Navy Pier. Those garages are both within walking distance to Navy Pier and serviced by a free Navy Pier Trolley on the weekends during the show. They are located at Grand Plaza Park, 540 N. State and Ogden Plaza Self Park, 300 E. North Water Street.
