GardenScape cancels annual show for 2013

Rochester Business Journal
October 31, 2012

GardenScape, the flower and garden show that has been produced each spring for the past 21 consecutive years by the GardenScape Professionals Association, will be forced to take a year off in 2013 because the Monroe County Fair and Expo Center is not available. 

The Expo Center, commonly called the Dome Arena and the home for all 21 previous GardenScape shows, is for sale, and exhibit and show dates in that venue have not been offered for 2013.

“While we are disappointed to have no GardenScape next spring, make no mistake that we will be back and better than ever in 2014,” said show chairman Sharlene Reeves, in a statement. “With two years to plan and to find a suitable venue, we expect to have a super show — our best ever.”

Reeves noted that the special physical criteria needed for GardenScape limits the options for a venue. 

Sponsorship opportunities for 2014 are available now. Interested parties may contact the GardenScape Professionals Association.
