Q

I am looking for history of the Harvest Show that PHS used to produce

I am looking for the dates of the Harvest Show which used to be in memorial Hall and before that at Ambler.

I am doing a history of my garden club. Back in the 1960s and on our club heavily participated in that show. When did it officially stop?

Answer

PHS Harvest Show: 1942 - 2002

Our Harvest Shows began as shows associated with World War II Victory Gardens. They were called Victory Garden Harvest Shows and were organized by PHS and held in Philadelphia.

For several years, PHS and Temple organized the Harvest Shows at Ambler  

From 1969 to 1981, PHS produced Harvest Shows at Memorial Hall in Fairmount Park.

In 1982, the Harvest Show moved from Memorial Hall to the Horticulture Center in Fairmount Park.

The last Harvest Show was in 2002.
