THE 2017 VERMONT FLOWER SHOW

NEVERLAND

March 3 – 5, 2017

facebookprofileJoin us for three days as spring comes to life at the 2017 Vermont Flower Show thanks to hundreds of volunteers working together to build a spectacular 12,000 square foot landscape indoors. This year’s Grand Garden Display with the theme Neverland offers the world of Peter Pan as inspiration for a magical garden journey. Gardeners and non-gardeners alike are drawn to the show for inspiration, education and a break from the long cold winter. Our biennial event, in its 18th year, attracted over 10,000 attendees in 2015.  Below is a list of show features, in addition to the Grand Garden Display!
