Step right up to get a front row view of lush gardens that celebrate the color and whimsy of Carnival as the Macyâ€™s Flower ShowÂ® welcomes the renewal of spring. In its 71st year, Macyâ€™s Flower Show sets the stage with nearly 130 varieties of flowers, trees and plants to reimagine the first floor of San Franciscoâ€™s Union Square store as a carnival fairground in bloom. Macyâ€™s Flower show invites the flower children of San Francisco to come and surround themselves with the sights, sounds and surprises of one of Americaâ€™s favorite vacation destinations â€“ the carnival.
Carnival, the theme of this yearâ€™s magnificent floral showcase, will bring spectators to feast their eyes on millions of blooms, replica rides enhanced with the seasonâ€™s most fantastic flowers, among other favorites of the midway; starting Sunday, March 26 through Sunday, April 9.
Macyâ€™s Flower Show â€œCarnivalâ€ celebrates colorful amusement with stunning and symbolic
gardens, including representation of The Midway, The Fun House, Tunnel of Love and Carnival Rides.
â€œA classic carnival celebration is on display at this yearâ€™s Macyâ€™s Flower Show, Carnival. With deep colors, patterns and displays that recreate everyoneâ€™s favorite carnival elements, this yearâ€™s Macyâ€™s Flower Show will invoke the spirit of imagination for spectators as they step into
this floral world of wonder,â€ said Susan Tercero, executive producer of Macyâ€™s Flower Show.
For 71 years, Macyâ€™s Flower Show has delighted generations of local floral aficionados with
extravagant presentations of gardens that showcase thousands of flowers, plants and trees. Taking root throughout the 1st floor of Macyâ€™s Union Square, the gardens are planted into specially designed and full-scale presentations. The showâ€™s centerpiece is a carousel-inspired praxinoscope, created by the Macyâ€™s team in partnership with the Exploratorium in San Francisco, which will feature images of moving merry-go-round horses projected from a flat disk by a rotating mirror â€“ a flashback to the genesis of motion pictures.
In addition to marking the official celebration for the start of the spring season, Macyâ€™s Flower Show also features participation from specially selected student-designers from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, who have created custom, one-of-a-kind, avant-garde looks inspired by vintage cardinal rides and attractions.
