The Yard, Garden & Patio Show was founded in 1988 by the Oregon Association of Nurseries as a way for the OAN to highlight the significant accomplishments of its retail and landscape members. It also provided a forum for the gardening public to experience what's new in the bright, beautiful world of ornamental plant material, as well as to learn new skills and techniques from gardening experts worldwide.
The largest consumer gardening event of its kind
The show spent its first four years at the Memorial Coliseum, before moving into its current home at the Oregon Convention Center in 1991. It has grown into the largest consumer gardening exposition of its kind in the United States that is produced by a state association using member volunteers. Most large gardening and flower shows are produced by professional organizations with staffs devoted exclusively to organizing those events.
The unofficial launch of spring
The show, typically held in late February, has long been recognized as the unofficial launch of spring in the Portland area. It features the latest ideas in plant material, landscaping and related outdoor accessories from more than 300 exhibiting companies and organizations. A series of showcase gardens adds colorful pizzazz to the show floor and provides visitors with a wealth of ideas on how they can enhance their own personal landscapes.
The show also provides unparalleled educational opportunities for the public. The Oregon State University Master Gardeners head a list of more than a dozen non-profit exhibitors whose mission is to educate the public about various aspects of horticulture and the nursery industry's environmental benefits. On top of that is a program of over 40 hours of public seminars featuring local, national and sometimes even international experts and celebrities in gardening and landscaping.
Mark your calendars for the 2014 Yard, Garden & Patio Show, February 28 - March 2. Oregon's leading outdoor living show, the Yard, Garden and Patio Show has the most targeted audience of any show in Portland that focuses strictly on plants, gardening and outdoor lifestyle products only.
