Enjoy the wonders of spring at the annual Capital District Garden & Flower Show in Troy, NY! The annual floral showcase is returning to Hudson Valley Community College from Friday, March 24 to Sunday, March 26, 2023.

Renowned for its full-scale landscape exhibits and creatively designed gardens, the Capital District Garden & Flower Show brings together local landscape professionals. The floral designers transform the arena into a backyard environment complete with shrubs, trees, flowers, ponds, waterfalls, retaining walls, sidewalks and lawns. The exhibits require months of planning and precise timing to force early blooms on thousands of flowers with breathtaking results.

Visitors will have the opportunity to attend a variety of demonstrations, lectures and presentations from local and regional experts. Some featured exhibitors at the 2023 show include Saratoga Sod Farm, Family Danz Heating and Cooling and Comfort Windows and Doors. A number of New York State wineries and distilleries will also be at the show.
