For thirty-three years, the Peter Becker Community Flower Show has been an exciting and colorful spring event. The show is a local favorite. It’s large enough to inspire, and yet small enough to be a crowd pleaser. People of all ages love the art, flowers, scavenger hunts, crafts, food and more. There’s also a Spring Marketplace showcasing 25+ local crafters, culinary artisans, make & takes and more. There is no admission charge, however, contributions help us continue our mission of serving seniors.

We welcome you to invite your family and friends to see the show and your work on display.
