The Chrysanthemum Show is an amazing floral display created by some of Hamilton’s finest horticulture staff. Chrysanthemums traditionally take stage in the autumn as the sumptuous palette of the season revolves around orange, brown, green, yellow and red, with a hint of pink and purple. People want to snuggle up indoors as daylight fades and Chrysanthemums are just perfect for those warm cozy moments. Chrysanthemums bring swaths of colour to the end of summer.

The Mum Show, as most people refer to the show, started in 1920 and has seen many changes over the years. A new theme each year has taken us through dramatic scenes of flowers, colours and displays with over 200 varieties of Chrysanthemums, and more than 100,000 blooms.

The Hamilton Fall Garden & Mum Show takes place indoors at the Gage Park greenhouse facility. Over 20,000 square feet of display space houses the show and plenty of free parking.
