Orchid Show

On April 11–13, the International Orchid Show will transform the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University into a spectacular world of orchids. See thousands of orchids from all over the globe, arranged in stunning displays and brought to their prize-worthy peaks for the show.

More than 30 spectacular exhibits will showcase thousands of beautiful, sometimes bizarre, often fragrant, and always interesting orchids in full bloom. Prior to the show’s public opening, these entries will be evaluated by certified American Orchid Society judges from the U.S. and Canada.

Park valet and then enjoy food and drink from 12 St. Catering, and even join us for a happy hour on Friday evening from 5-8. An extensive market offers the chance to purchase plants, gardening supplies, and other treasures from vendors from as far away as California, Ecuador, Brazil, Japan, Malaysia, and Taiwan.

There are lectures scheduled for all three days of the event. View the lecture schedule here. 

The Orchid Show is free for members or with general admission to the Academy.
