> 2017 Flower Show Event Schedule

Come one, come all to Macy’s celebration of the iconic American carnival, re-imagined with organic installations and floral arrangements throughout select Macy’s stores. Lose yourself in the quirks and delights of early 20th century fairs. Immerse yourself in the nostalgia of candied foods and the romance of old carousels. Fill yourself with orchestral music from Wurlitzer organs. Step right up and interact with the Flower Show in a whole new way.

2017 Highlights:

  • Free Starbucks – Stop by Starbucks on Level 4 and show your Flower Show brochure to receive a free tall drip coffee (one per customer, while supplies last, March 24-April 9).
  • Vintage Playland carnival pieces from Playland-Not-At-The-Beach on display – like Laffing Sal and a vintage fortune telling machine.
  • Vintage pinball carnival pieces from Pacific Pinball Museum
  • Carnival fashion – Stop by Level 3 and marvel at the magnificent creations of students from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising – all inspired by vintage carnival rides and attractions.
  • Carnival-inspired fare at Burger Bar
  • Free Hibiscus Tea with a purchase of select items at Tortilla Kitchen

Learn to build sculptural floral arrangements using materials gathered from nature. Local artist and designer Ezra Cattan will bring together driftwood, stone, moss, twigs and flowers for a unique take on floral arranging and the artistic process.

San Francisco-based artist and designer Ezra Cattan demonstrates a playful and sophisticated edge when fitting natural forms into traditional compositions for landscapes, gardens and interiors.
