Join us in the grand hall April 21 and 22 for a judged show and sale of the finest orchid specimens around. Judges will be on-hand Friday, April 20 to decide which orchids are the fairest of them all. Then, on Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22, vendors will arrive with orchids available for purchase.

Peruse the aisles to admire the judged displays and then speak to one of our several national vendors (including one hailing from Hawaii) about what orchid variety best suits your tastes.
