2018-19 Holiday Flower Shows "Tickled Pink" & "Holiday Memories" run through January 6

The 2018 Lincoln Park Conservatory Holiday Flower Show “Holiday Memories” and the 2018 Garfield Park Conservatory Holiday Flower Show “Tickled Pink” are open. Both holiday shows run through Sunday, January 6 from 9 a.m. -5 p.m.; and on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Garfield Park Conservatory, located at 300 N. Central Park Ave. The Lincoln Park Conservatory is located at 2391 N. Stockton Dr.

The Garfield Park Conservatory's Holiday Flower “Tickled Pink” is a celebration of pink poinsettias. In addition to the traditional holiday evergreens, this year's show features non-traditional varieties of poinsettias in pink and blush. Pink lights and other pink plants cast a rosy glow for all holiday visitors. There are 12 different kinds of pink poinsettia plants that adorn the green house’s Show Room. Guests are invited to come and search amongst the 600 pink holiday plants for the Luv U Pink, Freedom Pink, Polly’s Pink and Venus Hot Pink poinsettias. 

The Lincoln Park Conservatory's Show House turns into a Winter Wonderland filled with more than 700 poinsettias, trees, sparkling lights, and model trains that traverse through the plantings. Bright red, green and white poinsettias create a majestic backdrop, while Radio Flyer Red Tricycle and wagons add to the whimsical and vintage-inspired holiday display. For this year’s “Holiday Memories” showcase, exhibit curators dug out photos taken at the Conservatory in the 40s, 50s and 60s. These memories of holidays past are highlighted by a sky-high tree that is decorated with old-fashioned lights and Christmas ornaments of all colors, shapes and sizes. This winter, everyone is invited to come and make their own holiday memories at the Conservatory.
