The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Pop-Up Garden on Broad Street is coming back this weekend.
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society is trying to cut through all this snow with a return of its super-successful Pop Up Garden. From Friday, February 14th through Sunday, February 16th, the garden will be open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
There will be heated tents to make the weather bearable and Yards Brewing Company beers will pour. And check out the bright trees from Brian Hoffman Design.
The return of the pop-up garden is part of PHS's Flower Bomb events. All part of the run-up towards the Philadelphia Flower Show.
Each year the website Philebrity solicits votes for its annual awards, which include categories ranging from General Fabulousness to Non-Profit of the Year. This year there are several contenders who speak to Property’s mission. They are people and organizations who make significant, consistent contributions to the discourse around Philadelphia’s built environment, who promote design and architecture, who advocate to make the city a better place to live, who educate its residents. We can’t speak to Phoodie of the Year, but we chose our winners in categories we feel are relevant.

When we compiled the list of Philly’s Best Bars there was one bar that we couldn’t count. The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s pop-up beer garden received enough votes to place on the list and to come in rather high. Not bad at all for a pop-up garden that only was open for five months. But we couldn’t include a closed bar on a list highlighting the best Philadelphia has to offer. However, the PHS’s Pop-up Beer Garden was the hit of the summer (and fall) and deserves a special mention.
It was the go-to spot for al fresco drinking all summer. A wonderful place to meet friends or find new ones. The Kimmel Center and a setting sun presented a wonderful vista. Locals hears swelled with pride. Visitors were sold on Philadelphia after one look around. It was at once an urban respite and an energy filled lot of what can be. It forced the question, how can this location right on Broad Street, across from the Kimmel Center be allowed to have remained empty for so long? It’s a question that resonates today on South Broad and now across the city. For what the PHS’s garden really did, was open our eyes to what can be.
