Join us for the splendidly colorful San Diego International Orchid Fair where countless varieties of orchids grace the grounds, some in exhibits and some for sale.

Shop early at our new Members Only Pre-sale on September 30, 2011 3:30 PM-5:30 PM and enjoy a preview of the orchid exhibit in the Ecke Building. Another great reason to join or renew your Garden membership!

The event will be held on October 4, 2011 from 9:00 AM-5:00 PM and October 5, 2011 from 9:00 AM-4:00 PM at the San Diego Botanic Garden.

Learn from the experts how to care for your newly purchased orchids at “Orchids 101,” our ongoing lectures on culture and care.

Have your orchid judged. The show is an official AOS (American Orchid Society) judging event and there will be ribbon judging as well. To register your plants for judging bring them to the Ecke Building on September 29, 2011 4:00 PM–7:00 PM and September 30, 2011 9:00 AM–1:30 PM. Judging begins at 2:00 PM sharp.

Cost: Free on Saturday in celebration of Encinitas’ 25th birthday; on Sunday, event is free with Garden admission or membership.
