Phipps’ Garden Center Transforms Into a Botanical Boutique for Houseplants, Artwork and Many More Natural Treasures!

On Sept., 6 – 8, Phipps Garden Center transforms into a Botanical Boutique during the annual A Fair in the Park, hosted by the Craftsman Guild of Pittsburgh. Located right in Mellon Park, explore A Fair in the Park's beautiful array of artwork and make your way to Phipps' Garden Center to see a collection of local vendors and their amazing work! Guests can look forward to vendors selling houseplants, flowers, botanical illustrations, snacks, candles and so much more.  

Make sure to stop by the Dr. Phipps table to check out some upcoming classes in Botanical Art, Culinary, Landcare, and more! Learn about upcoming special events and lectures while getting any of your plant questions answered by our knowledgeable Master Gardeners. With live Botanical Illustration Demos and kid’s activities, the possibilities are endless at this adorable boutique! 

This event is a celebration of Pittsburgh creators and artists who strive to make connections between nature and necessity. Fostering new relationships between businesses, artists, and teachers, this event aims to promote small businesses while encouraging creative growth. The Phipps Botanical Boutique is a free event open to the public that coincides with The Fair in the Park, celebrating our shared space.
