Coming up is the
2018 Orchid Show
April 20-April 22





2018 Poster coming soon


The show will be held at the Gallatin Valley Mall, in Bozeman, MT,
in front of Macy's, on

Friday April 20, 12pm-8pm
Saturday April 21, 10am-7pm
Sunday April 22, 11am-4pm

Once again, experts from the American Orchid society will be judging the orchids. The judges not only award first, second and third place ribbons in each orchid classification, they also judge the orchids for special awards granted by the American Orchid Society.



Guest lectures at 2 pm on Saturday and Sunday in the show area.




Again this year we are going to have a bench show. This means that the orchids shown will be organized according to their similarities, and it will make it very easy to compare them with one another. This should help us to understand why some plants get ribbons and others don't.

Do you have a blooming orchid plant at home and would be proud to show it, but you are not part of our local orchid society? Or do you own some orchid art and would like to show it off?
No problem:


If you want to participate, be sure you read the show rules and agree to their terms:
