    Default Santa Barbara Orchid Fair, July 9-11

    Oooh...a new forum! I'll be the first to try it out!

    I'm definitely planning on attending the Santa Barbara Orchid Fair in 2 weeks...it's taking place between July 9-11th. This will be my first time visiting this specific orchid show, and I'm looking forward to having lots of fun. There are suppose to be over fifty growers in attendance, so it will be a decent size event.

    Is anyone else on the board from the West Coast and thinking of attending? I know a bunch of you are from back East...any other Californians out there? Any of you Easterners thinking of flying out to see the show? Santa Barbara is such a lovely city...it would be completely worth the trip.

    Nancy, is that the one at the SB orchid estate? It's supposed to be gorgeous out there. Wish we could go. Those big shows are really something to see!

    Yes, it's just a few blocks from the SBOE. I'm really looking forward to seeing both the showgrounds and the estate. If anyone wants more info on the fair, you can visit www.orchidfair.com.

    Hi Forrest,

    Awwwwwww, I was going to visit on Sunday. I have some out-of-town/country guests that aren't leaving until Saturday evening, so I won't be free until Sunday. Maybe you'll like the show so much that you will return for a second day, and I can meet you then!

    bummer. It will be pretty doubtfull that I will return on Sunday as it is about a 4-5 hour drive for me. There is always the SF show later on!

    I'll be in SB in September and the SBOE is on my itinerary, so I'll be interested in your input and photos. Enjoy!
