History of the Show

1985 – Started as a fundraiser for the San Francisco Friends of Recreation and Parks, the Show was originally held at Fort Mason and was named the San Francisco Landscape Garden Show.

1997 – Salmon Bay Events, a Seattle-based company owned by Duane Kelly, acquired the show. The name was changed to the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show.

1998 – The Show is moved to the Cow Palace in Daly City and covers nearly 6 acres.

2009 – The Show is moved to the San Mateo Event Center. Salmon Bay announces it is closing the Show. At the 11th hour, Special Events, a Bay Area rental company owned by Christine and Weston Cook, stepped in and acquired the show, saving it from closing.

2013 – The Show is acquired by Larsen Enterprises, LLC.
