Where is the L.E.A.F Festival of Flowers?
The Meatpacking District. The festival will encompass nearly all of the district, roughly bounded by West 15th Street to Gansevoort Street and from Hudson Street to Tenth Avenue.
What can I expect to see?
Flowers (a lot of them)! Brand activations, classes, and a whole lot more. Over 100 florists are bringing to life large-scale installations throughout the district. There will also be a European Style Flower Market on Washington Street where you can purchase curated florals by florists from around the city. Activations are spread across plazas and open streets with things happening at retail and restaurants throughout the district, Pride programming at the Whitney Museum, and numerous floral displays at Chelsea Market.
How do I get there?
The District will be fully pedestrianized to facilitate the festival. The Meatpacking District is surprisingly accessible:
- Walk – we’re nestled between Chelsea and Greenwich Village!
- Ride a bike (Hudson River Greenway, Eighth Ave bike lane)
- Public transportation
- A/C/E or L to 14th Street/Eighth Ave
- M11, M12, or M14 Bus to 14th Street + Ninth Ave
- Hail or book a yellow cab (and check us out on Taxi TV!)
- Book an Uber or Lyft (we have dedicated pick-up + drop-off spots around the district)
If you are driving, you can park in the following garages:
