York City, Chicago and San Francisco
Sunday, March 26 – Sunday, April 9, 2017
NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Step right up to get a front row view of lush gardens celebrating the
color and whimsy of Carnival as the Macy’s Flower Show®
welcomes the renewal of spring. Macy’s (NYSE:M) annual floral
extravaganza sprouts once again at three flagship locations nationwide
including Herald Square in New York City, State Street in Chicago, and
Union Square in San Francisco. From Sunday, March 26 through Sunday,
April 9, 2017, Carnival, the theme of this year’s exhibition will
transport more than a million spectators into a world of imagination,
filled with brilliantly-hued flora expertly landscaped into breathtaking
gardens that bring the magic of a traveling roadshow to life.
“As we celebrate the renewal of the spring season, this year’s Macy’s
Flower Show will take spectators on a trip through a classic fair, where
the deep colors, patterns and displays recreate everyone’s favorite
carnival elements. From the big top to the fun house with thrilling
stops on a rollercoaster and Ferris wheel, ‘Carnival’ will surprise and
delight more than a million spectators who step into these floral
wonderlands at our three flagship stores,” said Susan Tercero, group
vice president, special productions/Macy’s Parade & Entertainment Group.
At the center of the spring celebration, a colorful two-tiered carousel
complete with animated column horses will bloom with thousands of
rhododendrons, bromeliads and other exotic flora, welcoming guests into
the funhouse atmosphere. As spectators walk through the midway, they
will see a kaleidoscope of color as the world of Carnival reveals
classic fair favorites, including a roller coaster, bumper cars, a
Ferris wheel and games of whimsy, all recreated using more than 5,000
types of florals and plants.
For more than 70 years, Macy’s Flower Show has delighted generations of
floral aficionados with over-the-top presentations of lavish gardens
that showcase millions of live flowers, plants and trees from around the
globe. Native to many different landscapes, Macy’s Flower Show features
floral material blooming in unison despite their unique climatic DNA.
Taking root in unexpected settings such as store countertops, windows
and specially-designed architecture, including grand bridges, columns
and topiaries, Macy’s Flower Show is staged in unique fashion at each of
the three locations nationwide.
In addition to the floral wonder, spectators will have the opportunity
to enjoy a host of special in-store events, including floral, food and
fashion demonstrations, celebrity appearances, and more during the two
weeks the show is in full bloom.
Macy’s springtime tradition is made possible nationally thanks to
partners Girl Scouts of the United States of America, Sinclair Oil
Corporation, and the Sino-American Friendship Association.
Free to the public, Macy’s Flower Show will be open during regular store
