Phipps Holiday Magic: Winter Flower Show and Light Garden

You're invited to join us for our upcoming virtual fall celebration, Perfect Pairings! This year’s event has been reimagined to allow you to enjoy the splendor of all that Phipps has to offer from the safety of your own home.

We invite you to enjoy an evening of memorable performances — from some of our city’s finest entertainers — filmed in some of Phipps’ most beautiful and iconic spaces with the gorgeous displays of Fall Flower Show: The Poetry of Nature serving as a breathtaking and vibrant backdrop.

Your ticket includes a special Pairings Box that you will receive ahead of the event to enjoy during the performances. Each box is perfect for two guests and will include wines, dessert and other special treats. Choose from a red, white or mixed Pairings Box.

For over 125 years, Phipps has been where nature is most celebrated in Pittsburgh and a place of relaxation and respite. As a nonprofit much of our revenue is generated by admission each year and we, like so many others, have been impacted greatly by the current circumstances. We need your help now more than ever to ensure that our horticulture, research, education and sustainability programs remain strong.
