Chicago’s magnificent Navy Pier will welcome over 40,000 guests to the 2017 Chicago Flower and Garden Show set for March 18-26, 2017.
Just steps away from the show, Chicago’s premier Lakefront Seafood restaurant Riva Crab House at Navy Pier is honored to once again be a part of one the world’s largest flower and garden shows. After a morning of touring the show, guests can treat themselves to an incredible lunch special trio at Riva that includes a Half Turkey Croissant, Organic Greens Salad and Chef’s Daily Soup for just $16.
With more flowers, foliage and fragrance in 2017 – and the theme, “Chicago’s Blooming!” – the show is a welcome feel of spring at the end of Chicago’s winter. Opening the show and new this year: a fashion show like none other, where florals are the fashions.
FLEUROTICA, presented in collaboration with the Garfield Park Conservatory Alliance, joins the show’s Evening in Bloom preview event on St. Patrick’s Day, Friday, March 17, with co-chairs Amy Rule and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Proceeds from Evening in Bloom benefit the Alliance, as well as Pilot Light and the Illinois Restaurant Association Education Foundation.
Tickets for FLEUROTICA are online here.
Turning 170 in 2017 – and marking the occasion with beautiful display gardens, truckloads of plants and expanded “see and do” programs – the Chicago Flower & Garden Show is one of the country’s top three consumer garden shows and one of its oldest, with roots that date back to 1847 as the Chicago Fruit and Flower Show. It was also one of the first consumer shows ever held at Navy Pier.
