36th Annual Mid-America Bonsai Exhibit
August 16 - 18, 2013
Our August show is our show with the longest history, going into year 36 in 2013. It is one of the biggest regional shows in the nation. Centered on the Chicago Botanic Garden's Permanent Collection, featuring almost 50 world-class trees, it’s a showplace of trees from across the midwest. Enthusiasts from five states bring their trees to be judged in the main hall at the Garden's Regenstein Center - with this year's Guest Master Bjorn Bjorholm. There are no residency or membership restrictions for entering the show - any tree that can make it to Chicago is welcome to be entered.

Along with this fabulous display of regional talent, there are over a dozen national vendors, workshops, free demonstrations, and a banquet with a silent auction.
