The Maine Flower Show: March 29th-April 2nd, 2017

We are excited to announce that the inaugural Maine Flower Show will be held at Thompson’s Point in Portland, Maine from Wednesday, March 29th through Sunday, April 2nd, 2017.  The Maine Landscape and Nursery Association (MELNA) has organized and engaged hundreds of its members and volunteers to provide Maine with the best flower show ever!

The new Maine Flower Show promises to be an exciting and visually over-the-top experience. The show will feature 16 display gardens and 100 exhibits of plants, hardscape, arbor and garden supplies, and all things relative to outdoor landscaping and living. There will be many wonderful opportunities to learn something new at any one of the educational workshops or demonstrations, staffed by the most knowledgeable and experienced speakers and instructors in the industry.

MELNA has selected the Good Shepherd Food Bank to receive proceeds from the Maine Flower Show Premiere event, scheduled on March 29th, and hopes to make a $10,000 donation to this worthy charity.

Any remaining show profits will be utilized by MELNA (a non-profit trade association) to further its mission of education, including college scholarships and certification programs, promotion of Maine’s horticulture industry, and legislative advocacy for Maine’s small green businesses.

Tickets will be on sale soon! If you’d like to be the first to know about tickets sales and early-bird pricing, please subscribe to our events on Facebook. We are hoping to grow this into a really amazing event, so please spread the news and invite your friends and family.

    1. Hi there,

      We don’t have specific activities for children this year but we are always looking for suggestions for next year! We are giving away mystery seed packets to plant a pollinator garden so that makes a nice activity when you get home. Hope this helps and hope to see you at the show.
