From San Francisco to Broadway

San Francisco hosts the largest orchid show in North America this week. The 59th Annual Pacific Orchid Expo starts with a Gala Benefit Preview on Thursday, March 3. The show is open to the public Friday, March 4 – Sunday, March 6. Tickets are available online. With 150,000 orchids under one roof, you’re guaranteed to have a jaw-dropping good time. Dave and I will be there with our cameras.

A tropical escape is closer than expected for New Yorkers. “The Orchid Show: On Broadway” promises to dazzle at the New York Botanical Garden. The exhibit runs from March 5 – April 25. Tony award-winning set designers showcase over 5000 orchids and the Great White Way. The exhibit also provides activities for kids.

From March 5 – 13, the City of Brotherly Love hosts the 2011 Philadelphia International Flower Show, the world’s largest indoor flower show. This year’s theme is “Springtime in Paris,” and includes plenty of orchids. Tickets are available online.

In addition to these and other long-running exhibits, Cleveland Botanical Garden offers “Orchid Mania – Purple Reign” from February 26 – March 27. It’s an orchid tribute to the most royal of colors. Along with beautiful blooms and wonderful scents, the exhibit includes a photography contest.
