As we have proven over the last 20 years, the RI Spring Flower & Garden Show is certainly not your average Flower Show.  Our show has delighted thousands of visitors and is one of the largest attended public shows at the RI Convention Center.

In June of 2013, the RI Spring Flower & Garden Show announced with great pride that we had been nominated as one of the Top 100 Events in North America!  To celebrate, we are turning the traditional flower show world completely upside down.  This year, our show is so unique and so different that it may change the way people view flower shows forever!

Our 2014 show will combine America’s passion for gardening with our love affair for classic cars.  Vintage autos will be the centerpieces for the gardens.  Nothing stirs memories more than vintage automobiles.  Some of the most talented landscapers of the Northeast will create their own unique gardens with classic autos of their choice.  Examples may be a 50’s period garden featuring a classic Belaire or an Italian piazza featuring a Ferrari.

The 2014 Flower Show will be like no other Show in the country and will be a guaranteed hit with crowds of all ages and interests.  As the cold and dark winter months leave everyone longing for spring, the RI Spring Flower and Garden ​Show delivers spring and so much more. Visit our show and you will have spring just a little bit earlier this year and it will  be boasting with spectacular colors, fragrances and yes, even ​a touch of ​chrome!

Be a part of it all this February as the RI Spring Flower & Garden Show completely transforms the RI Convention Center into a wondrously beautiful outdoor experience. In addition to our ​30 ​award winning gardens, attendees will also enjoy horticultural lectures and demonstrations by nationally acclaimed speakers, an exciting garden marketplace with 200 vendors to choose from, our very own Borders Bookstore on site and stocked with your favorite gardening books, dozens of vintage autos to view, and enough children’s activities to keep the whole family busy during school vacation week. Our exciting speaker list for this year includes Brent Ridge, Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Roger Swain, Chris Fletcher, Louis Raymond, Melinda Myers, Warren Leach, and Mike and Angelina Chute!

The RI Spring Flower & Garden Show runs from February 20-22 from 10 am to 8 pm and Sunday, February 23 from 10 am to 6 pm.
