The Junior League of Philadelphia, Inc. (JLP) Sustainers invite you to enjoy the beauties of the famed Philadelphia Flower Show and the exceptional masterpieces of the Barnes Foundation along with your fellow Junior League members during Flowers, Barnes & Fun.

Join us for three delightful days in Philadelphia. We’ll welcome you to our city with dinner at The Acorn Club. The next morning, prior to the doors opening to the public, a VIP tour of the Philadelphia Flower Show will guarantee a full view of the spectacular displays with plenty of room to wander. You’ll have time to relax after the show before we gather for dinner at The Cosmopolitan Club. Our final day will begin with a farewell breakfast buffet at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown hotel, followed by a self-guided audio tour of the Barnes Foundation, which houses the most outstanding impressionist/neo impressionist paintings alongside multi-discipline international works of art.
