Nashville Lawn and Garden Show Returns in March

The annual event returns March 2 - 5 to the Expo Center at The Fairgrounds Nashville.

Spring returns to Nashville with the Nashville Lawn and Garden Show at The Fairgrounds Nashville Expo Center, Thursday, March 2 through Sunday, March 5, 2023. 

The Nashville Lawn and Garden Show has inspired generations of gardeners and plant lovers with its live, indoor garden spaces. Creatively constructed patios, pergolas, water features, landscapes and containers of bright flowers serve as motivation for green thumbs – and those who would like to learn.

About the Nashville Lawn and Garden Show

The juried competition among gardeners determines Best of Show and several other awards, including the Show Theme Award presented to the gardener who best reflects the year’s theme. The region’s most talented floral designers compete for top recognition among their peers with their breathtaking arrangements, and show attendees are invited to vote for the People’s Choice Award. The theme for 2023 is the “Sounds of Spring.”

Lectures and workshops, free with admission, teach topics from attracting bees, butterflies and birds to how to grow specific flowers and plants. Experts from across the region share their knowledge and provide keys to success. Shoppers enjoy 200 vendor booths filled with garden décor, plants, flowers, lawn equipment, farmhouse crafts, bird and bee houses, and more. Free trees, seeds and advice are plentiful throughout the Show. Several dozen community non-profits host tables providing knowledge and information about historical gardens, wildlife, organic and sustainable farming, horticultural topics and more.
