Creative floral designs, displays of interesting horticulture, educational exhibits, artistic crafts and a gallery of photography await you in the FGCCT Standard Flower Show, our section of the Connecticut Flower & Garden Show.
Beyond our Flower Show are large indoor landscape displays and hundreds of vendors where you will find every gardening tool and plant and garden accessory. Join us to close out the winter and let in a “Breath of Spring”.
The Annual CT Flower and Garden Show, held at the CT Convention Center in February is one of the most visible ways for the Federated Garden Clubs of CT., Inc (FGCCT) to show off the talents of our garden club members. The Show Chair, working closely with a committee of more than 30 spends countless hours, over the course of a year, to plan all details of the show from the Theme, Schedule, and Creative Staging down to the floor plan and even how many gallons of paint are needed for the staging pedestals. Working with North East Expos since 1982, our involvement has continually grown. Not only do we judge the landscape displays and present an Excellence in Design Award, we also present seminars on floral design and involve the public by voting for the People’s Choice Design Award in Honor of Barbara Bruce.
The FGCCT Standard Flower Show has four divisions: Botanical Arts, Design, Education, and Horticulture. As a member of the Federation, you can enter exhibits in any or all of the divisions and have the opportunity to win one of the Top Exhibitor Awards. In addition to hundreds of outstanding Horticulture exhibits, there are 72 Photographic entries, 64 Floral Designs, 16 Educational Exhibits, and 12 Artistic Crafts. Take a look at the Schedule for the Show and start planning what exhibits you want to enter. With any luck you’ll go home with bragging rights after winning one of the Top Awards.

The complete schedule may be found in the Member Login area under FORMS – Flower Show.
Consider volunteering to help at the Show. We need over 300 volunteers to turn the work of the Show Committee into a reality. We need painters, helpers for setup and cleanup, hospitality helpers, judge’s clerks, hostesses during the show, graphic designers, and administrative help. It really does take a STATE to make this show a reality. It’s a Breath of Spring in Connecticut! Contact email@example.com

This was my first year attending the Garden Show and it far exceeded my expectations. There were many inspirational and amazing landscape/garden displays as well as a separate flower show exhibit. The flower show arrangements were beautiful, creative and works of art. The interesting and informative booths are also a great resource in planning your own home projects.

We always enjoy attending the CT Flower Show. Although I enjoy all the landscape designs and usually find a “must have” in the vendor section, over the years I have come to especially enjoy the Flower Show section. It’s so interesting to see how different people interpret the themes in their designs! It’s incredibly creative!
This year I attended a seminar by Cathy Ritch entitled “Cute, Classic & Creative…a Floral Design Style for Every Lifestyle” which helped me realize that creating an arrangement doesn’t have to be complicated or necessarily follow a preset list of rules. It can be easy, quick and fun and totally based on what the creator likes.
I picked up a lot of tips!
