One of many Philadelphia traditions includes the Philly Home + Garden Show. The 2022 Show is from February 25-27. Additionally, the Show is at The Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks. Tickets are available at the door or online.

It is important to note, that this is different than the Philadelphia Flower Show. The Show has great historical significance. It is the nation’s largest and longest-running horticultural event.  It is traditionally held at the Philadelphia Convention Center.

The Philly Home + Garden Show is also different from the Philly Home Show. This year, The Philly Home Show is being held March 18-20 and March 25-27.
