The Coronado Flower Show is the largest tented flower show in the nation. Exhibits are placed inside tents surrounding a central gazebo, which becomes the stage for continuous entertainment, announcements and trophy presentations. Held in Coronado’s Spreckel’s Park , the Show features landscape displays, horticultural and floral competitions, lectures, food, beer and wine events, live entertainment, demonstrations and shopping.
A Wine and Beer Garden is now a permanent feature of the Flower Show. Take a break from the show, relax and listen to the entertainment from the nearby bandstand. Wine and Beer Garden Hours: Friday: 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.; Saturday: 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.; Sunday: 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The public is encouraged to participate in the fun by entering one of the many sections. Entry is open to everyone, except for firms or individuals engaged in selling plants, flowers, or floral designs as a business, or engaged in raising them for sale.
Established in 1922, the Coronado Flower Show is annually organized and presented by the Coronado Floral Association, with the support and assistance from the City of Coronado.
Normally the Coronado Flower Show is held annually on the third weekend of April in Spreckels Park in the center of Coronado’s Village. Since Easter falls on the third weekend this year, only in 2014 will the Show be held on the fourth weekend.
The Flower Show will be held from April 26 – 27, at Spreckels Park. Admission is $5, and free for under 12 and Coronado Floral Association members.
