Seattle Is Welcoming Spring With An Enchanting Garden Festival This Month
There'll even be floral gin & tonics! 😍
Thanks to the rain that just won't let up, Emerald City has had one of the gloomiest winters ever. But that's never stopped Puget Sounders from getting into the spirit of spring. A massive flower and garden festival is coming to the city this month and it's going to be one of our top to-do items on the Seattle festivals 2020 list this year.
The Northwest Flower & Garden Festival has been the city's way of welcoming flower season since 1989. But this year, it's bigger than ever before with not just blooms and bubblies, but with trendy Fleurs de Villes' figurines, floral cocktails, and a wine bar!
The five-day flower palooza begins on February 26 and is on till March 1, 2020, at the Washington State Convention Center from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Tickets are on sale right now for $20 per person for one day and $36 for two days.
If you can't see it all (or can't get enough) in a day, we don't blame you. You can buy a five-day pass for $75. More details can be found here.
Acclaimed as the second-largest garden show in all of the U.S., this extravaganza will have over 30 intimate gardens for you to explore.
Here, you can expect sculptures, endless plants, Bonsai trees, pergolas, magical pools, andthat'll make you feel like you're actually Alice in Wonderland!
If you've ever wanted to see an Ikebana arrangement without having to board a plane to Japan, this is your chance.
Imagine all the beautiful pictures you're IG is about to thank you for.
A spokesperson for the event told Narcity that there'll also be over 100 free demonstrations where you can learn from the best on how to create that dreamy patio that you've always wanted.
It'sin real life, folks!
For an added $75, you and your friends can also sip on champagne all day and create your own flower displays that you can take home.
After you've had enough green inspo, make sure you stop by stalls (there are at least 380 of them, so wear comfy shoes), and shop for everything from earthy jewelry to silks, planters, andand shrubs straight from the nursery.
There'll also be plenty of freebies and giveaways at the booths.
