Get out of the cold Chicago winter and surround yourself with greenery at the Garfield Park Conservatory’s Holiday Show ‘Fire and Ice’, featuring poinsettias in fiery colors, conifers and other plants that evoke both fire and ice. Right about now we’re all about ready to escape the Chicago chill. No need to hop on a plane to break from the cold. In fact, you don’t even need to travel more than a few miles. We love this FREE indoor option in the city. Enjoy a traditional holiday flower show among the lush showrooms & vibrant colors of the Garfield Park Conservatory.
Each year, the Garfield Park Conservatory’s botanical showrooms are decked with a seasonal theme and adorned with glowing flora & fauna to help you get into the holiday spirit! This year’s show tells a conservation story about the regenerative power that fire and frost can provide to our ecosystems. Showcasing a range of poinsettas in fiery colors, conifers, and other plants that evoke both fire and ice, the Holiday Flower Show is a community staple – whether you’re looking for a backdrop to take annual festival photos, or simply a colorful wonderland that offers the perfect place to escape the holiday bustle.
FOR THE KIDS
After you have wondered at the incredible Fire & Ice display, let the kids loose in the Elizabeth Morse Genius Children’s Garden, where they can climb a seven-foot-tall faux seed and slide down a “stem.” Check out the Monday Morning Glories program which gives kids and caregivers the chance to make a creative, nature-inspired craft.
The 2017 Holiday Show ‘Fire and Ice’ runs through January 7, 2018.
