    Default You're invited! Pacific Orchid Expo - San Francisco

    Start making your plans….
    The largest orchid show in the United States, the Pacific Orchid Exposition, is returning to San Francisco on February 23-26 at Fort Mason Center. The visual wonderland features 150,000 orchids from around the world, many local, national and international vendors, as well as special speakers, docent tours and horticultural tips.

    In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge, the show's theme is "A Salute to the Golden Gate" and will feature an exquisite replica of the Golden Gate Bridge made entirely out of orchids.

    The Pacific Orchid Exposition is hosted by the non-profit San Francisco Orchid Society and is the organization's largest fundraiser. The show opens with a Gala Benefit Preview on February 23rd, offering live music, delicious hors d'oeuvres, celebrity appearances and wine tasting from over 20 of Northern California's premiere wineries.

    For additional information, please visit San Francisco Orchid Society
    Hope to see you at the POE!

    I tried to get to that show a few years ago. I was over there for the Miami show and after going to Cuba and Jamacia we came back to San Francisco, but because of the other show it was moved passed the time we had here. We have been over there several times but none have worked out. I have walked pass the building where it is held but I think that is as close as I am going to get.

    Hi TedNZ,
    Sorry to hear you haven't made it yet to the POE. It really is a great show. Although going to Jamaica and Cuba, as you have, doesn't sound half bad! While the dates do change each year, it's generally the end of Feb/early March. Hope you will keep it in mind when you're out this way again.

    I went last year. It was wonderful! I am not going to make it this year, and being that I live SO close to Fort Mason, it's almost depressing. ALMOST...I did treat myself to a bit of online shopping from the vendor I most wanted to shop with at the show!

    I wish I could make this one. I've always wanted to go.
