30 Jan Northwest Flower & Garden Show to Close Without Buyer
It greatly saddens me to tell you about our press release that we had to release this morning. You can read it at the Seattle Times. I know that hundreds of people rely on the show each and every year and in particular the artists who are struggling to make it financially in these tough economic times. But without sponsorship, shows don’t make it and due to the economy, sponsorship is down 50% this year-ouch.
The Northwest Flower and Garden Show/San Francisco Flower and Garden Show need a buyer. And the asking price is very reasonable, considering what the shows can bring in. If a buyer steps forward, we can all continue to enjoy (and learn from) the shows each year. If not, the doors are closing and thousands of people in the northwest will be without the annual flower show that they love.
This year’s show is on as scheduled and there is a great line-up of speakers, vendors and people to help you with your gardening needs. Please join us this year and help us celebrate what is known as a garden pillar of our community. Support your northwest artists, garden vendors, garden speakers/authors by your presence at the show. Buy your ticket today.
See you there!
