Hall of Flowers History
The Hall of Flowers is traditionally one of the fair's biggest attractions. Since its inception in 1952, it has established a reputation as the largest flower show on the West Coast and the only fair in the U.S. to have a themed display of such magnitude.
And being FREE to all, it regularly draws into its cavernous setting just about everyone who enters the fairgrounds.
The handiwork of professional landscapers, landscape designers, amateur gardeners and young floral enthusiasts goes on display each year. Fully formed fantasy gardens pack the hall as they adhere to a central theme that presents creative challenges.
Over the years, themes have ranged from the days that dinosaurs roamed the earth to days that trouists roamed the Wine Country. And everything in between.
