#1 It’s a tradition since 1922
The Coronado Flower Show is a slice of Americana. In its early years it was sustained solely by donations from the private sector. Coronado schools loaned desks and typewriters; the Hotel del Coronado provided trellises and tables; and even the local Boy Scout troops camped in the park to provide security for the show and its visitors. During WWII the flower show skipped three years (1943-1946) due to national defense efforts, then resumed in full force in Spring of 1946.
#2 Largest tented Flower Show in the Nation!
A spring tradition since 1922, the Coronado Flower Show is the largest tented flower show in the U.S. and fills most of a city block in the beautiful San Diego beach community of Coronado.
Located at Spreckels Park this two-day event includes landscape displays, a variety of floral competitions, educational lectures and demonstrations, live bandstand entertainment, food, beer & wine garden with locally crafted beers, and shopping. There’s also a Home Front competition which awards exceptional home and business gardens throughout the city.
The Coronado Flower Show is produced by the Coronado Floral Association with support and assistance from the City of Coronado.
