Don’t Miss: Rhode Island Spring Garden & Flower Show Feb. 21-24

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

 

Spring blooms early when the 20th Anniversay Rhode Island Spring Flower & Garden Show comes to Providence.

Can spring come soon enough? Thanks to the 20th anniversary Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden Show, it will be here from February 21-24, 2013.

Regular lovers of this major event at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence will be in store for surprises as soon as they enter the garden display area, passing under a 14-foot-tall pergola decorated with flowers constructed by Walpole Woodworkers. Inside, the gardens and vignettes beckon with a larger waterfall, a nautical-themed garden featuring an actual sailboat and a walk through the history of the Show through one gardener’s display of each of the Flower Show’s past theme posters.

Special appearances

Kevin O'Connor, host of television’s pioneer home improvement series This Old House, will be a featured speaker at this year’s Show. O’Connor joins a roster of garden and horticultural experts including author and landscape designer Julie Moir Messervy and nationally known gardening expert and author Melinda Myers who will appear during the Flower Show’s Bartlett Tree Lecture Series.

Marketplace returns

A favorite of show attendees, the Marketplace returns with more flower market vendors, a Build Your Own Bouquet station, more pottery and vases for sale and garden and lawn ornamentals including copper pieces made in Lincoln, Rhode Island. To help gardeners enjoy their hobby to the fullest, the Lifespan Wellness Pavilion will offer various health screenings and educational materials.

Bigger and better: Food & Wine Festival

Again this year, the Show presents its exclusive Food and Wine Festival from 1:00 to 6:00 pm each day of the Flower Show in the Fifth Floor Ballroom of the Convention Center. Featured will be continuous chef demonstrations in the Rhode Island Kitchen and Bath Theatre Kitchen with celebrity chefs including “Top Chef” Tiffani Faison; Sara Moulton of public television’s “Sara’s Weeknight Meals;” Nemo Bolin, chef-proprietor of Cook and Brown Public House in Providence; and Johnson and Wales University Chef Educators Frank Terranova, Neath Pal and Ciril Hitz. Wines from all over the world will be available for sampling with tastings led by wine personalities such as Randy Arnold, “The Barefoot Guy” pairing foods and wines.

Advance tickets are on sale until February 15th at www.flowershow.com. Advance ticket prices start at $17 per person. Combo tickets for both the Flower Show and Food and Wine Festival are $30. Advance tickets to the Flower Show only are available at AAA Southern New England offices.
