It’s how York welcomes spring. The 26th annual York flower show runs March 3-5, 2017 celebrating garden practices past and present as well herbs for use and delight.
Pennsylvania Garden Show of York (PAGSY), March 3-5, Memorial Hall of the York Expo Center is one of the top five flower and garden shows on the east coast. It is celebrated for its balance of walk-through Landscape Display Gardens, a bustling Garden Market, a Standard or judged Flower Show, make-it-and take-it workshops, free seminars and Wine Tasting in the Gardens. There are 120 different exhibitors this year. PAGSY benefits in part, the Veterans Memorial Gold Star Healing and Peace Garden in York’s Memorial Park.
