The Northwest Flower & Garden Show serves the Western Region of North America from Alaska and Vancouver, BC to San Francisco, California, with visitors coming from 15 to 20 states a year. Attendance has ranged from 55,000 to 60,000. The show runs from Wednesday through Sunday, and is typically held in February. There are three main components: approximately 20 display gardens built in three days; over 350 exhibitors selling high quality garden-related products, and over 90 free seminars on three stages, including a do-it-yourself demo stage.
The show's 65-75 seminar speakers include garden writers, authors and garden design experts from around the US, Canada, and UK. The show also has 10 City Living balcony gardens, an Ikebana display, and a floral competition. There is a live reality show held daily in front of show audiences which has friendly competition and education. "Container Wars" challenges two designers to create three lush planted containers in under an hour.
The show was started in 1989 by Duane and Alice Kelly, remaining in the downtown Seattle Washington State Convention Center ever since. It was the first large public event ever held at the Convention Center. Duane Kelly said he was inspired to start the show by his visits the mid-1980s to the large flower shows in Philadelphia and Boston, and by his own interest for gardening and the theater. Portland-based O'Loughlin Trade Shows took over production after buying the show from Duane Kelly in 2009. Ohio-based Marketplace Events acquired the show in June 2018.

Burnaby is a large urban Municipality adjoining the City of Vancouver and has just recently adopted the Rhododendron as its official flower. Since this is also Canada's Centennial year, the Burnaby Centennial Committee is underwriting a spring garden show as a joint effort with the Vancouver Chapter A.R.S., to be the first of a series of annual spring garden shows at which the Rhododendron will be the feature plant.
