The Orchid Show—NYC’s ode to springtime—should not to be confused with the season’s other stupendous garden party: the Macy’s Flower Show. However, both bloom fests are worth a visit. If you’re not familiar, The New York Botanical Garden’s Orchid Show exhibits thousands of species of beautiful blossoming orchids, and it’s one of the best NYC events in February, which lasts through April. Get over your winter blues by enjoying the lush scents and sights of one of the best New York attractions.

What is the Orchid Show NYC?

Things get super tropical at New York Botanical Garden—just when we need it most. At the 15th annual Orchid Show, you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to Thailand, this year’s theme, after viewing a kaleidoscopic range of vanda orchids. Come prepared to snap an envy-inducing Instagram shot of a traditional Thai pavilion adorned with hundreds of gorgeous plants. And if you think you have a green thumb, you’re in luck, you can nab one of your very own. Stay for the cocktails, Thai dance performances and live music on select nights.

NYBG’s Orchid show runs from Saturday, Feb 18 to Sunday, April 9, 2017.

If you're looking for an escape from the winter blues, you must attend the New York Botanical Garden Orchid Show. It's filled with flowers, plants and colors that you've never seen before. It's a massive exhibit and runs the entire length of the large greenhouse. It will take you about an hour and a half to walk through. It's only $20 to get in the exhibit and you can explore the rest of the park.
