03 Feb Who Moved the Garden Show Ticket Office?!
Like any mildly obsessive gardener that moves a plant only a few feet to get the garden just right, the team at the Northwest Flower & Garden Show has MOVED the Ticket Office to the 4th Floor North Lobby. If you go looking for the ticket office in the usual street-level location on Convention Center Place, you won’t find it!
Last year, when Mother Nature got cold flashes and dumped snow and freezing temperatures on Seattle, people had to stand outside in a long line to buy tickets before the show opened at 9 am, or to buy Half-Day tickets at 3 pm. So in order to make the ticket purchasing experience more comfortable for all our garden show attendees, we decided to relocate the ticket office into the spacious area outside the show in the North Lobby.
To get to the ticket office from the South Lobby, just follow the signs and go down the hallway. While you’re waiting in line enjoy the the lovely tunes from solo piano artist Victoria Salmon, from Fairbanks, Alaska, who will be playing throughout the five days of the show. After you purchase your tickets you can enter the show from there, and you’ll find yourself next to the skybridge, where the Container Exhibition and Subaru “Wild West” garden will be.
Or you can go back down the hall to enter from the South Lobby (near Tully’s), where you will find the Floral Competition, the Subaru Impreza Improv Display and the Alaska Airlines “Seasonal Variation” Getaway Garden, along with the South Lobby concert stage and another entrance to the show gardens.The WILL CALL office remains where it has always been – next to the South Lobby entrance, acorss from Tully’s.
Of course the easiest way to buy tickets is to simply go to our ticket page on our website and use our convenient print-at-home feature. Or if you prefer to go to a ticket outlet, you can search for one using our searchable list and find the outlet nearest your home.
Remember, the Early Bird gets the worm (that’s a good thing if you’re a bird) so to get the Early Bird ticket price of only $16 for a full-day ticket, you must purchase your ticket no later than midnight on February 7th. After that, online and ticket outlet prices go to $20, as well as at-the-show ticket prices.
If you want to leave the show and return later, don’t forget to get your hand stamped on the way out!
Children 12 and under get in FREE and a Youth ticket is only $5. Or spring for a really great bargain, a 2-Day Pass for only $29 (only available online, by phone at 253-756-2121 or at the show). See you at the show. Mother Nature is smiling upon us this year, and the weather is looking like it will be just the way we like it! Spring arrives February 8 – 12 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle! ~ Janet
