An alternative to the Spring Show and Sale of the past, we’re organizing ORCHID FEST 2023 in partnership with the SLO Botanical Gardens. Orchid Fest 2023. April 1 and 2, 2023, 10:00 am-4:00 pm, at the SLO Botanical Gardens Pavilion Building. Most of the vendors who participated in old Orchids will be present in thie new venue at the Botanical Gardens. Sunset Valley Orchids, Orchids by Design, Ambritz Kingdom of Plants, CalCoast Orchids, SLO Orchids, Asbell’s Orchids and Orchids of Los Osos will all be bringing orchids for this sale. Plant auctions, raffles and a cake auction will be featured during the event. Volunteers are needed for the FCOS booth, to answer questions, sell orchids and run the auctions and orchid giveaways. This is your opportunity to talk orchids and meet existing and prospective members. We really need the participation of our local members to make this successful.
