Chicago Flower and Garden Show Inspires, Educates and Motivates




The 2019 Chicago Flower & Garden Show, the Midwest’s premier outdoor living and landscape consumer lifestyle show, will take place at Chicago’s Navy Pier from March 20 through 24. The event kicks off on March 19 with the charity benefit preview, Evening in Bloom at the Chicago Flower & Garden Show.

       This year’s theme, “FLOWERTALES: The Story Grows On,” interprets the unique role that flowers, plants and gardens play in the stories of our lives and literature. Visitors can stroll through more than 20 realistic gardens created by local landscape designers, builders and suppliers that will inspire and educate about the possibilities for their yards, gardens and balconies.

       The Get Growing Foundation is the show’s educational programming and outreach partner of the Show. With workshops and live presentations, the nonprofit organization leads the educational focus. Guests of all ages will enjoy the latest trends and tips to help any garden, and children attending will have numerous hands-on opportunities to learn gardening from the ground up.

       This year’s show isn’t just about gardening. There will be celebrity chef demos, live music, evening craft beer tastings, other children’s activities, special exhibits, and, of course, master gardener Q&A sessions and an extensive Home and Garden Marketplace to ensure there’s something for everyone.

       On March 24, The Mike Nowak Show with Peggy Malecki will be broadcasting live from 9 to 11 a.m. on 1590 WCGO radio, streaming live from MikeNowak.net and live on Facebook at The Mike Nowak Show.
