MACY’S FLOWER SHOW® PRESENTS ONCE UPON A SPRINGTIME

 
Macy’s on State Street Showcases a Floral Spectacular from March 25 through April 8
 
 
Chicago, IL – March 2018 – Enter a world of magic, imagination and wonder as the Macy’s Flower Show® opens the first chapter of Spring with Once Upon a Springtime. Macy’s annual floral spectacular will bloom at Macy’s on State Street on Sunday, March 25 and sprouting through Sunday, April 8. This year’s show will come to life on the first floor of Macy’s on State Street. The iconic architecture of the main floor will be transformed into enchanted gardens where the beauty and renewal of the spring season meets the whimsy of a fairytale journey telling this year’s theme – Once Upon a Springtime.
 
For more than 20 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 will be staged in distinct fashion at Macy’s on State Street. 
 
This year's themed celebration will bring to floral life an original twist on classic fairytales, creating a world of personified flora and fauna, princesses, evil queens, fairy godmothers and noble knights that lead to a wondrous journey.
 
As visitors enter each show, they will have the ability to choose their own adventure, based on how they begin their trip through the floral fantasy land. From a towering castle where the Princess resides to a meadow of brightly colored flowers, an enchanted forest, and lush lagoon; spectators will play a part in Spring’s triumph over eternal Winter.
 
In addition to the magnificent landscaped gardens, Flower Show spectators will have the opportunity to enjoy a host of special in-store events including floral, food and fashion demonstrations, celebrity chef appearances, and more during the two weeks the show is in full bloom.
 
Macy’s springtime tradition is supported in part thanks to signature partners including Girl Scouts of the United States of America, Homewood Suites® by Hilton®, and Sinclair Oil Corporation.
 
Free to the public, Macy’s Flower Show will be open during regular store hours.
