Now in its 42nd year, the Winter Carnival Orchid Show has become the premier winter event for orchid lovers throughout the Midwest, attended by nearly 5,000 orchid enthusiasts. Perhaps in response to those long cold winters, Minnesotans are avid plants-men and women and welcome the chance to see and purchase something out of the ordinary. It is the desire of the Show Committee to present orchids to the public in a way that takes full advantage of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory setting, capturing the imagination and transporting show goers far away from frigid Minnesota--for a little while at least! Orchid plants and orchid-related items will be for sale from the following vendors: Arnold J. Klehm Growers, Inc, Deerwood Orchids, Ingram's Better Orchid Books, Mans Farms, Natt's Orchids, Orchids Limited, Ten Shin Gardens (DIRECT FROM TAIWAN). This year we are letting the public vote on the best Winter Carnival themed display via Facebook. So stop by and place your vote!
