Philadelphia Flower Show 2019 Theme
The theme of the Philadelphia Flower Show 2019 is Flower Power. The Flower Power theme pays tribute to two events. The impact of flowers on people and the Woodstock Music Festival 50th anniversary.
First, the incredible impact of flowers on our lives. Studies on the power of flowers have been conducted over the years. The findings of these studies only confirmed what many of us have known. That there is tremendous positive effects of flowers and plants on people. The power of flowers is why so many of us are drawn to flowers and plants. We recognize the value of flowers and always seek them out. Published results of these studies revealed that the effects included happy emotions, increased creativity, and increased productivity.
Second, the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival. Billed as Three Days of Peace and Music. Held on a dairy farm in the Catskill Mountains in 1969. The Woodstock Music Festival was during the “Flower Power” era. The three day festival, “Woodstock 50” is planned to honor the 1969 event. “Woodstock 50” will take place at Watkins Glen, 80 miles from Syracuse. The event dates are Friday, August 16 thru Sunday, August 18, 2019.
This year, visitors will learn about the impact that flowers have. And how flowers transport a wide range of emotions and messages. Flowers truly do transcend cultures and borders. Our love of flowers and gardens is shared by many people from many countries and cultures. You’ll find many displays of breathtaking gardens, landscapes, floral arrangements, and floral decor on the show floor.
