One of upstate New York’s most anticipated events, New York in Bloom is an annual fund-raiser for the Museum’s educational programs for children. Garden club members, professional designers, interior designers and floral enthusiasts from the Capital District and beyond will create over one hundred unique floral arrangements that complement and interpret the museum’s permanent and temporary exhibitions.

Visitors can view several demonstrations on Saturday and Sunday about gardening, design and creating floral arrangements. There will also be free children’s arts and crafts activities. A flower market will be open in the lobby area on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., while supplies last. Mazzone Hospitality and Losee’s Homestyle Deli will offer a selection of light luncheon fare on the 4th floor of the Museum.

The complete program guide for the weekend is available here:
