Macy's Annual Flower Show

Starts Sunday through April 7, various times
Union Square

Dubbed a "Journey to Paradisios," Macy's will transform its Union Square location into a space-themed floral fantasy world during its 73rd annual Flower Show beginning this Sunday through April 7. A celebration of color, adventure and discovery, the event will feature over 5,000 types of plants, trees and flowers depicting various outer space themes. Additionally, there will be a host of themed in-store events including floral, food and fashion demonstrations, celebrity appearances and much more during the two-week course of the show.


How to Get There on Muni: Riders may take any Muni Metro Line to the Montgomery Station stop, the F Market and Wharves Line, the Powell/Mason and Powell/Hyde Cable Car lines, any Market Street bus route, as well as the 2 Clement, 3 Jackson, 8 Bayshore, 30 Stockton, 45 Union/Stockton, or 76X Marin Headlands Express routes to near Union Square.

Muni Service Notes: There are no planned service changes for this event.

Remember that you can take Muni for the entire day for a single $5 fare. The new $5 Day Pass, available on MuniMobile®, is part of Muni’s recent fare changes. The pass is intended to encourage a safe, convenient way to pay your fare and quickly board Muni vehicles, which reduces overall travel time for everyone. The $5 Day Pass is Muni bus, rail and historic streetcars only.
