Indiana Flower & Patio Show returns to state fairgrounds

A long, cold, snowy Hoosier winter will be brought to a welcomed halt on March 8, when doors swing open to the 56th annual Indiana Flower & Patio Show.

This traditional harbinger of spring celebrates finer outdoor living with a myriad of inspirational features including the return of the Urban Homestead, Grill University, the all new Brew Bracket Backyard Brewfest, small space gardening, the Think Spring education stage, more than 400 expert exhibitors, and, of course, the gardens.

More than 40 Showcase and Featured Exhibitor Gardens to replicate at home, or simply to use as creative muse for your own outdoor space, will be the stars of the show again this year.

“Personal Spaces” is the theme of the 56th annual event. Landscape designers have been challenged to think outside the proverbial box and develop garden designs that best depict their view of finer outdoor living. The gardens will run the gamut — from warm, cozy, intimate gathering spots to expansive entertaining areas.

Each will illustrate the latest in outdoor living: dramatic fire features; soothing ponds, streams and waterfalls; beautifully crafted structures; luxurious outdoor kitchens; trending patio furniture; plantings that engage all of the senses; new designs in hardscapes, and more.

The show runs from March 8 through 16 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds’ West Pavilion and Expo Hall, 1202 E. 38th St., Indianapolis.

Show hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday and Friday.

General admission is $13, with children ages 12 and younger being admitted free. A $3 downloadable coupon, and advance sale tickets, are available online at www.IndianaFlowerAndPatioShow.com. Discounted advance sale tickets also are available at all Indiana Marsh Supermarkets.

Senior Day is March 10, when admission for adults ages 65 and older is $9. Marsh Day is March 11, with giveaways, coupons and other goodies available at the show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
