This year’s Chicago Flower and Garden Show includes a shopper’s paradise Marketplace; nationally-recognized experts presenting information-packed seminars; Garden Gourmet cooking demonstrations featuring top chefs; a professionally-decorated Tablescapes display; and a newly-expanded Kid’s Activity Garden.
This year’s show theme — Chicago Is, aims to inspire, educate and motivate just about anyone to enhance their green spaces with practical ideas that are simple to incorporate and maintain.
This year’s show begins with the Evening in Bloom preview party Friday, March 11. Highlighting this year’s “sneak peek” at the gardens are top chefs from around the country associated with the Trotter Project, this year’s beneficiary of Evening In Bloom. The Trotter Project is a national initiative driven by alumni of the late Charlie Trotter’s restaurants to unite those interested in the culinary arts through various events and programs designed to educate and inspire. Another highlight of Evening in Bloom will be an appearance by celebrity restauranteur, master sommelier and television personality, Alpana Singh.
