American Flowers Week 2018
What is Amer­i­can Flow­ers Week?
Launched in 2015, AFW is a week-long cel­e­bra­tion of domes­tic flow­ers to raise con­sumer aware­ness and unite America’s flower farm­ers with the U.S. flo­ral indus­try. The dates coin­cide with Inde­pen­dence Day (June 28-July 4, 2018).

What is the purpose?
The goal of Amer­i­can Flow­ers Week is to engage the pub­lic, pol­i­cy­mak­ers and the media in a con­ver­sa­tion about the ori­gins of their flow­ers. As an advo­ca­cy effort, the cam­paign is timed to coin­cide with America’s Inde­pen­dence Day on July 4th, pro­vid­ing florists, retail­ers, whole­salers and flower farm­ers a patri­ot­ic oppor­tu­ni­ty to pro­mote Amer­i­can grown flowers.

Who can participate?
Any­one who grows, designs, mar­kets, sells or just enjoys flow­ers can get involved to high­light domes­tic, local Amer­i­can-grown flow­ers. Par­tic­i­pa­tion ranges from indi­vid­ual flo­ral design­ers and flower shops to whole­salers and retail­ers. We are eager to doc­u­ment involve­ment through social media and par­tic­i­pants are encour­aged to use the hash­tag “#amer­i­can­flow­er­sweek” on Insta­gram, Twit­ter, and Facebook.

Stay tuned to our Face­book and Insta­gram pro­files to learn more about what we’ll be pre­sent­ing at this year’s Slow Flow­ers Sum­mit!
